Photograph Information Photographer's Comments
Challenge: Long Exposure III (Basic Editing)
Camera: Canon EOS-40D
Lens: Canon EF 28-135mm F/3.5-5.6 IS USM
Location: Duke University Chapel, Durham, NC
Date: Dec 18, 2007
Aperture: F8.0
ISO: 100
Shutter: 6 sec.
Galleries: Architecture
Date Uploaded: Dec 18, 2007

Well, we will see how this will do. I am sure some folks won't like the appearance that the chapel is tilting away from the camera. I do know this, but I love the look this provides and while I will gladly take comments to that end I love the way it looks. That being said I will always take tons of critical comments that will help me get better.

Ok, shot with a 6 second shutter speed at F8 at 100 ISO. I used mirror lockup and a two second delay on the shutter release since I don't have a remote or cable release.
PP was very very simple. Crop, sharpen, and save for web.

This is an excellent night shot. Subject, exposure and composition are all very "right" IMHO.
I lived near Durham, at Gardner, for a while a long time ago. It's a pretty area of the country.

The gold and gray in the stonework really makes this picture for me. Nice!

Very nice. The lighting on this is awesome showing a lot of teh detail in building. Also the colors in the brick are very nice and not oversaturated. Nice shot.

Nicely done. I like the "studio" effect created by the darkness

I like this shot... shows detail that you wouldn't have gotten during the day, or with a normal night shot.
