I was in a cafe and noticed a postcard from the builder on the counter asking for feedback on the construction of the building.
I couldn’t help but wonder what the builder would do if everyone said the same thing about how the construction should be changed.
In fact, the building is very pleasant in that 21st century way that speaks of life being cleaner there in the building. Clean and better insulated there from the difficulties of life outside.
I think that is why people like Starbucks. It passes on a bit of its chic to us and we can live in that cocoon for a little while. It’s certainly part of the reason I go there – that and the coffee (and the fritters).
So, I looked up in the cafe to examine the building and saw the framing of the sky in the skylights.
The shot here is the Pro HDR shot, which captured a greater contrast range that suited the image.
I am not a big fan of over-the-top High Dynamic Range images. But Pro HDR has sliders that allow you to manually adjust the brightness, contrast, saturation, warmth, and tint. And unlike ‘Fake HDR’ apps that only use one image and then fudge it – Pro HDR takes two exposures, which enables it to take advantage of the full dynamic range in the scene.
You do need to hold the camera steady for the two shots, but they follow on pretty much one after the other after the app has analysed the lighting.
