Some of my friends are involved in “HDR Tennis” where one of them posts a set of bracketed shots and they all process them in their own way. Once the processed HDRs are posted the public can vote on their favorites. All that to say that when the latest HDR Tennis brackets were posted — from the interior of the Texas Capitol building — it reminded me of some bracketed shots I had yet to process.
On the same night I took these shots, I walked inside the Capitol and grabbed some shots inside. The building is beautiful and one could spend weeks taking a range of pictures from the standard rotunda images to abstracts of fancy railings, floors, windows, door knobs and hinges. I took a few bracketed sets that I hadn’t done before then had to run off to pick up my daughters nearby.
Both images were processed from 6 exposures in Nik HDR Efex Pro. Minor tweaks were done in Lightroom after that.
