I was on a business trip last week and didn’t have anything prepared to post while I was gone. It was the first sunny weekend in, forever maybe and I worked outside instead of shooting or processing photos. Hopefully I’ll get back on track again.
I wanted to post this today because it’s the 14th – wow, it’s been 2 months since we were in Mazatlan, but it feels like a year ago. These are flowers I had delivered to my wife for Valentines day. Too bad they didn’t arrive on Valentines day like they were supposed too – but that’s not a story for here.
I knew we wouldn’t be able to take these home with us so I wanted to get a few shots and the room overlooking the ocean was beautiful. Of course there was so much light coming through the windows that any single exposure correct for the roses blows out the windows, table, background and everything. Any exposure that revealed the ocean and blue sky put the interior in darkness. So, I did the only thing someone looking for an excuse to try more HDR could possibly do – used one of the chairs as a tripod and holding as still as possible shot some frames.
The ‘thing’ on the table – it’s a small sea shell we found on the beach. I put it on the table because I thought it added a bit of interest to the scene.
