Buckhead Lenox Road Skyline

We were leaving Phipps Plaza on Friday night after stocking up on winter clothes at Belk and I got a couple of pictures of the skyline looking west over Lenox Road.  There are a lot of great perspectives from Phipps Plaza of nearby Buckhead high rise buildings.  Here is how they were shot:

Nikon D800, Nikon 14-24mm f/2.8
ISO 500, 14mm, f/5.6
5 frames 1/10-1/160 sec
Processed in Photomatix Pro and Lightroom

Water In and Around Atlanta

Over the past 6 weeks I have been taking a photography class at the Showcase School here in Atlanta.  We had to choose a project for the class and I decided to document some of the bodies of water in and around Atlanta.  A few examples that I photographed are the Chattahoochee River, Nancy Creek, Lake Clara Meer, the Pond in Atlantic Station, and the Chastain Park Pond.  Here are some of the photographs from my project:

City of Atlanta Skyline Fogged Over

This morning the fog was thick in Atlanta, and even at 9:30 am it was still hanging low.  I was on my way to Decatur on Freedom Parkway and saw the City was still engulfed so I jumped over to the Jackson Street Bridge and caught this shot.  You can view what it typically looks like here http://picturesofatlanta.wordpress.com/2012/01/09/hdr-atlanta-skyline/

City of Atlanta Skyline SNS HDR

The picture above was processed using SNS-HDR.  I also use Photomatix a lot to process HDR shots, and here is what it came out looking like.  I’d be interested to hear which one you prefer.  I like the one out of SNS better, it just feels cleaner to me.  Let me know what you think.

HDR Atlanta Skyline

This year I am doing a new 52 week photo challenge on Flickr.  The first week’s challenge was to take a photo showing off your town.  I really enjoyed getting night shots from the Jackson Street Bridge overlooking Freedom Parkway so I headed back over there during the day and got this shot.  It’s an HDR image of 3 shots.

City of Atlanta Night Skyline HDR

I took this shot from the Jackson Street Bridge overlooking Freedom Parkway, looking west towards the City of Atlanta night skyline.  It was a cold and windy night which made me nervous of camera shake despite my tripod, but on top of that the continuous traffic over the bridge would surely turn out a shaky picture…but I think it turned out pretty well.  This is an HDR shot using three exposures totaling close to a minute.  Let me know what you think in the comments.
