Looking toward San Pedro. Los Angeles Main Channel is towards the left.
Downtown Los Angeles, CA
Neighborhood: Jewelry District (Los Angeles)
A three-exposure HDR of Pershing Square.
This photo is part of my 2009 52 Week Project: My Surrounding Neighborhoods.
There’s no way to get this result from a single exposure. This had to be an HDR photo.
I love how this turned out.
With an slightly cloudy day like this, tall, abstract structures like this really pop against the sky.
This is a handheld three-exposure HDR photo at the entrance of some park in Downtown Los Angeles.
Sometimes on the way home from Los Angeles Union Station, I’ll get off at Chinatown station because the colors and clouds in the sky look interesting.
This is an HDR image from three exposures.
I lingered further at the Wilshire and Normandie station, not realizing there was an interesting mural. It felt like an HDR opportunity.
I’m happy with the sharpness and minimal ghosting in this HDR attempt. It helped that the people at the bottom of the frame didn’t move.
Three handheld exposures with my Canon EOS 40D at 1/40, 1/10, and 1/2 seconds – f/4.0, ISO 800, 18mm
