Night and Day Difference - GAR Memorial Hall

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 28 July 2009 in Architecture.

Above is a capture of the dome in the GAR Memorial Hall of the Chicago Cultural Center; what used to be the main branch of the Chicago Public Library before the Harold Washington Library opened. This photo was captured July 24, 2009. This photo was processed in HDR and the difference between this photo and the photo that I took on August 1, 2008 is amazing.

Looks more festive, I think. And you don't have the trouble with outshone regions in the centre. :-)

Ah, yes, the process has overcome those hi-lights . . not long, now, before an in-camera HDR comes to market . . it cannot be that difficult !

This is a beautiful image. I am not a fan of HDR, however..find it too tight, controlled and artificial in the sense of "more real than real" if you know what I mean. I prefer your image of August 2008. I will keep viewing to see what else you do, HDR or otherwise! :-)
