I know. I've done this before, but I really like to take pictures of this old building.

This looks great in HDR... love the tones on the building itself... sorry to see, though, that your HDR photos aren't in the HDR galleries... fine photos you have, though!

I really like the lighting. You could probably clone or whatever the truck out of the picture. I am not very knowledgeable about the hows but, I know it can be done. Great job of catching a mood though ...

I never knew there was an actual "Hotel California" like in the Eagles song. Is this the one they are talking about?

You did a nice job on this image. I really like the angle of view here. It's just unfortunate that the white truck had to be parked there with everything else empty.

Beautiful shot. I'm no expert but I think you did a fantastic job of post processing. It has such a softness to it.

Well heck, this is potentially SO sweet! I'd like to hear exactly how you PP'd it, and perhaps see the original; I might have some suggestions on how to perfect it. I presume you have noticed the slight, but distracting, haloing around the building and the central palm tree?

Where is this, btw? I'm a SoCal native, relocated to Cape Cod upon retirement, and I'm sure I've seen this before. I'm thinking Santa Barbara?

And are you really older than me? Pleased to meetcha, in that case; I feel like such a dinosaur in DPC...
