Market Post Tower

Market Post Tower

A gorgeous day with scattered showers opened up a fabulous blue sky, very white clouds that enhanced the tinted glass on the Market Post Tower.  This shot is a single exposure.  I tried a few, and a couple bracketed series.  The single shot worked better than what I came up with as an HDR version.  Not to mention, as single-exposure it will qualify for an entry into the travel category in tomorrow night’s competition. 🙂

  1. Wow that is one golden building! Almost doesn’t look real…has a cartoon finish about it (not that that is bad). Good luck in the competition!

    • The black trim really gives it that effect, doesn’t it! Outlined like a cartoon character. Thanks! Fingers crossed. 🙂

      • I’m not really on flickr. I have an account, but i never go there. I post to SmugMug and then use the small WordPresss world to do my photography stalking. 🙂

    Wow, all of your macro photography is absolutely stunning! But this shot it my favorite of yours that I’ve seen :] it almost looks fake due to lack of shadows! Definitely worth the extra bracketing effort ;] good job!

    • Rosie, thank you! I always try to bracket architecture shots. You never know where the sweet spot is. And yeah, I think this one looks fake too, perhaps just a tad bit of desaturation to make it believable? Nah, then it wouldn’t grab you. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by, and welcome!
