I have to ask myself. Why are there moose and a naked indian at the base of the George Washington statue in front of the Philadepia Museum of art? I'm sure there is a good reason, I just don't know what it is. Again, single shot handheld HRD using Photomatix.
One of the other things that I wanted to do while in Philadelphia was take a nice HDR picture of Independence Hall. Lesson learned: I should have gone to this site first: http://www.nps.gov/inde/
The hall is being renovated. Since I walked all the way over there, I took the picture any way.
Note to you photographers out there. The park rangers are wound kind of tightly. As soon as I set up my tripod one of them came over and started asking a lot of questions about why I was there and what I was doing. I almost laughed at him when he asked if I was a professional photographer. Then he asked me if I was taking video. So, I started asking him questions. Is it OK to take pictures of the hall? Is it OK to use a tripod? Is it OK to stand on the sidewalk in front of the hall? Is it OK to be a tourist? He finally mumble something about national security and left me alone.
Lots of people had cameras out and were taking pictures. It was the tripod that got the attention. I must…
I spent a week in Philadelphia recently. One evening we walked over to see the Liberty Bell. Now, I know that the visitors center closes at 5pm. So, all I could get is a shot through the glass. Lots of reflections, but you can still see the bell pretty well.
