Nashville or Athens?

Parthenon and fluffy clouds Spotted this Parthenon replica in Nashville last month when visiting Nashville.  We stopped by so quickly at mid day that the out of camera shot was a bit...mid day-ish so I upped the drama in processing a bit.  This building has such a grandeur that shooting it right on and getting the scale seemed appropriate.  I also got this shoot people-free by shooting the back side of the building...and also it was about 95 degrees out so no one was really hanging out on the concrete.

Processing:

  • - 3 exposure HDR -1 1/3, 0, +1 1/3
  • - Photomatix tonemapping
  • - Photoshop masking, noise, sharpening
