[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Inside the Utah State Capitol Building Rotunda

Originally shot using the Canon 15mm 2.8 Fisheye lens and then de-fished and convert (from raw) using DxO Optics Pro.

NOTE: I had initially taken a series of images using different exposures, intending to combine them together using hdrsoft's Photomatix Pro to create an HDR image. In the end, I used only a single image. It was overly dark ... and yet DxO managed to pull a lot of color detail out of the darkness.

I'm attaching the Workshop image so you can see what I mean.

Hello David,
Great picture here. I really like the contrasting colours in this one. You have taken this at a great time and have included a good composition.
Job well done.

Hi David!
Nice to see a fellow Salt Lake photographer! I like the fisheye effect here. I have shot this interior also and found it a difficult place to have free of PEOPLE! Saturday afternoon about 3 o-clock is good if you want no crowds, although in your shot they add good character. I did an HDR shot of the east stair going up to the supreme court side of this rotunda and have posted it on TrekEarth under my smt2 username. I noticed your shot of the same staircase. It's really good! Great shot here David!
