Another weekend, another game, another arena. While waiting for the girls to hit the ice I noticed the "ticket booth" at the front of the arena. Now apparently used as a storage facility. Shooting from inside looking out through a window is of course too much dynamic range for a camera to handle. Even that aside the image I had in mind screamed HDR. I wanted to bring out all the texture of the counter and brick while also having the window grate and graffiti clearly visible.
So I jammed my lens against the glass and rattled off a bracket of nine frames. Generally I don't go for such a hyper-real graphic HDR style but it fits here. At least for me. Processed with Nik's HDR Efex Pro and Photoshop.
