Wait For Me!



I took this a couple of days ago around Portland State University in Portland, Oregon around dusk.


I put on my 70-200 mm lens on a 1.3x body and looked for shots. I wanted to challenge myself to use just that lens because I often just use my wide angle around town. It was actually a little tricky because the zoom just didn't lend itself to my usual composition style - I ended up being quite a bit closer to things than I originally anticipated.


I think I came away with a couple of shots that I like from the afternoon walk.


Technical Notes: This is a one shot HDR from -1 EV to +2 EV processing in Photomatix. I used Phototools 2.5 to add a cool cast to the photo. It actually has some a stong underlying yellow tone that I think helps balance out the blue.
