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:
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:
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/
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.
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.
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.
