We were walking around Charleston historic district when we passed this light. I thought the shadow and the light fixture had pretty cool effect. Sometimes walking random streets and keeping your eyes open can lead to some cool shots. I have no idea where exactly I took it, but I’m sure that this light fixture on this wall, with this shadow is one of a kind.
This is HDR from a single capture. I like how HDR brings out all the textures on the stucco wall and made it really more dynamic. With most of my single shots I try to process them straight in CS5 as well, without HDR, and compare look and feel of them. Sometimes straight processing wins hands down, sometimes HDR is better. In this situation HDR processing was so much more interesting and reminded me of the actual place.
Thanks for stopping by!
