The Gothic Study - The Private Library of William Randolph Hearst

Newer Older

Stanford Walk
I'll meet you all at The Oval on Thursday at 4 PM. There is ONE bit of bad news. There was going to be a talk afterward at 5:30 PM, but it looks like the auditorium at Stanford fell through. This was a surprise to me too - so, my apologies... however, the walk is still on and I look forward to meeting y'all.

As a bonus, I'll be giving away a lot of Smugmug goodies! So be sure to come with room to take home something special!
Topaz Detail Review
Topaz Detail just upgraded their cool software. I have written a quick Topaz Detail Review, which I will add to more in coming weeks. It's a really nice and fun program - I invite you to check it out!
Daily Photo - The Gothic Study
Note this is the "small" library. I'll post the main library in a few weeks!

As always, you can zoom in to see the details by clicking through. The details are quite incredible, and I am sure you will delight in seeing the closeups of the hand-carved wooden arches and the painted Spanish ceilings... it was all amazing! If you look closely at the full res version towards the middle, you can see a portrait of WR Hearst when he was 31-years-old.

    Anytime I start getting cocky about my HDR work I come over here and am deeply humbled, again.
    Amazing work!
