9 exposure HDR using my Nikon D800E and Nikon 14-24mm. I switched it to black and white because I didn’t like the blue sky since there was no clouds in sight.
I’m amazed how often people click on my blog because they are searching for information on Chicago’s “The Bean” (its real name is Cloud Gate). I’ve posted this image before in color but honestly have never been happy with the look of the sky. Here’s the picture in black and white. I think I’m finally […]
I read somewhere on the web that the Nikon D800E dynamic range was so great, that shooting HDR (blending multiple images together to increase tonal range) was unnecessary.

Unfortunately, it will soon be demolished because it is no longer in use (this is a common occurrence in this part of the U.S.). P.S. This […]
