Here is another one of my first HDR photos. I took this with the kit lens on my NEX-3, which is why there is a good bit of warping, but I kind of like the warp for some reason. I have always like this photo and one of my favorite parts about it are the blinds on the right and how the reflection of the building across the street plays off of it.
I love this eagle statue on the front of the University of Southern Miss campus and the colors worked together well. I have spent a lot of time in Hattiesburg over the last year and gotten some nice photos.
This past weekend while visiting family, we went on a whirlwind tour of Hattiesburg and Red Bluff in Marion County. One of our stops was at The University of Southern Mississippi campus where my brother-in-law drove me around campus to get some photos. One of the places I wanted to get photos of was their football stadium affectionately called "The Rock". Luckily, the gate was open to the field so I just walked onto the field and one of the cool shots I got was of this eagle statue in the endzone right under the scoreboard. More shots of Southern to come.
Here is a nice train station that has been renovated and is a nice part of downtown Hattiesburg, which I really enjoyed shooting. Here is more info about the train depot. I think the colors give a look of parts of the depot being made of gold, which it actually is not (of course). How cool would that be though?
Hattiesburg was one of the first towns that I really got to shoot outside of the Golden Triangle area. Lots of nice architecture to shoot downtown and as you can see in this photo, some cool trees too. I mainly shot this photo because of the tree but the backdrop really works here. This is actually one those photos that I didn't have to do lots of work on. The color came out really nice and it's a nice crisp shot and is a fairly subtle HDR. The best part about that day was there were very few cars and people around and when I first looked at this photo I thought there was neither in the shot, but if you look closely you can see both.
I spotted this fountain, oddly enough, while taking someone's senior photos while walking around downtown Hattiesburg. I thought the fountain was really neat and different. Check out a few more photos of Hattiesburg here.
