Challenge: Best of 2011 (Advanced Editing VII)

Location: Garden Key/Dry Tortugas, Florida, USA
Date: Nov 15, 2011
Aperture: Various
ISO: 400
Shutter: Various
Date Uploaded: Feb 8, 2012

Inside the hot and humid stairwell at Fort Jefferson in the Dry Tortugas, 2 and a half hours by boat from Key West.

I shot a similar photo about ten years ago in a cathedral in Paris with my old CoolPix 990 and the fisheye adapter. With that lens I was able to capture 180 degrees; impossible to keep my feet out of the frame! I 'shopped them out, nonetheless.

This is a five exposure HDR image, merged and tone-mapped in Photomatix. In Lightroom, converted and tweaked in black and white, added vignetting. In Photoshop, resized, unsharp mask, export to web. I never really could be happy about the glare from the window. :(

Very cool view. I can just imagine getting to the top and finding a dragon.

Definitely love the perspective here and the intent. 9 for concept, execution and not making me know which way is up.

This is not by chance a photograph of the inner part of the tower at Aysgarth School, UK; is it?

Great b&w - the perspective really does make you feel as if it's inside out - or outside in :)

Nice find and composition. I really like that sliver of window. Might be nice a little darker inside but I'm not sure. 8
