Photographer's Note

I know most photographers here on TE are not in favor of HDR. And i can understand why, as people believe it does not represent the true photograph - i actually think the opposite - HDR can show us the true scene in most cases.

I will post a WS photo to show one of the actual photo's from this scene, and you'll see how HDR can be so effective in bringing out the shadows and highlights in one scene.

The only way i could have came up with any photo here was using HDR, or perhaps Lightroom. Here, the light was SO bright coming through the Large window, and the rest of the scene was SO dark.

As for the scene itself, this was taken from The Landing, a building in Gastown. I wanted to show you a new POV for the Colored Sails - can you see them? They are a bit off into the distance through the window, but they're there. My plan was to photograph this in the sunset lighting with the sails in Color! But the Concierge working the Front Door of the building would only allow me 15 min to photograph my scene, then I had to leave! Argh!! My plans were ruined!

The large window is beautiful, it caught my attention right away, and the Piano is quietly sitting there covered in a brown drape just begging to be played.

Hope you enjoy it.
this one is obvious, but for John (y)
