The Blood-Colored Walls of the Tomb

    Newer Older

    This is Humayun's Tomb in Delhi. It's a wonderful place full of a rich bouquet of textures and light. There isn't a bad shot of it to be had in this well-preserved Moghul tomb, and these light levels were made for HDR.

    I've put another image of this tomb in the upcoming book. I talked a little more about the shot and some additional explanation about how it was made. When I go around and give talks, get feedback, and hear all the comments here on the blog, flickr, and facebook, I get a lot of repeat questions. I think the book will be a good chance to get them all in a nice definitive place where almost everything can be addressed. At least, I hope so!

      Eye popping. The colors and sense of light, very creative.

      Trey -
      There is a lusciousness to your work that is truly rare.
      I don't care about the shot (which is awesome) or the location (which is equally awesome). It's the processing. I can read your book a thousand times and no doubt my stuff would look a thousand times better. But what you have is a gift. I doubt that I will ever be able to achieve what you do.

      Thanks for the target just the same.

      I'm way behind in my Flickr "Your Contacts New Items" RSS feed. So I'm flying through pictures in Google Reader. I saw this (it was just a thumbnail) and thought, "OMG, where did the elephant go in the Smithsonian!?!?" I have a shot with a very similar perspective from the natural history museum... I'll have to post it later.
