A Morning Field Trip (Halifax, Nova Scotia)

Digital original
The Halifax skyline has been littered with construction cranes for the past year or two, and from time to time I have investigated them with a camera, but this is the best image I have made of them to date, primarily because of how well the intersecting lines work.

Part of the focus of this field trip was using the new Lightroom Photo Merge HDR process to deal with scenes of extreme contrast; the above image, of the rising sun back-lighting morning cloud, was a perfect scene to create an exposure blend, needing three different exposures to cover the full range of tones from highlight to shadows. Lightroom did a perfect job of blending them together.

As I was walking back to my car from the field trip, I happened to walk past an Keith's Hall, an historic building which recently had its facade restored. As it was a Sunday morning, there was almost no traffic, so I was able to work with my camera in mid-street to make this classic elevation view of the porch.
