Must View this Large On Black


The William G. Mather is a retired Great Lakes bulk freighter. In December, 1987, the steamship was donated to The Great Lakes Historical Society. The Mather is now a museum and is located north of the Great Lakes Science Center at Dock 32, near Cleveland Browns stadium.


This is actually an HDR created from 3 auto-bracketed exposures (-2,0,+2) with Nikon D90 and my Sigma 10-20mm wide angle lens. Processed HDR with Photomatix 3.1, and did the black and white conversion final adjustments in Photoshop. I'm all about color, but it's been quite a while since I've processed one of these 16 bit TIFF's in a high-contrast, monochrome....and it really added to the moody/dramatic feel.


Enjoy the last weekend in July folks, as August will be here before we know it!!!
