Photography Friday

In keeping with the theme of the blog, I decided on another library picture this week.  This is a picture taken from the first floor of the Iowa State campus library.  I was attempting to create an HDR picture to capture both the lighting and the shadows well.  Unfortunately, it was pretty dark so I needed a slow shutter speed and I had no tripod, so I wasn’t able to get three shots lined up exactly enough for HDR.  What I ended up doing was manually merging two pictures – one at a normal exposure, for the lighting, and an overexposed image to make the concrete look brighter.  I’m still not entirely happy with the framing (maybe it could be better taken from the second floor?) and I would like to get a true HDR shot, so I might go back for another stab at this one later 🙂
