Sure has been a fun week sharing these images of the Union Depot in St. Paul with you guys and, to be honest, it’s the most HDR processing I’ve done in a few months. I’ve got some long exposures on deck and it has been tough holding back on sharing them, but I was able to drive off that urge…for a few days anyway! Next week!
The most fun image of the bunch was saved for the finale. Capturing the beautiful restored architecture around the building is great and I’ve enjoyed it, but finding these little gems is much better in my book. Even though the image has some very pretty elements to it, the unknown component of the image is much stronger. Why did they remove the clock that was obviously there at one time? Why did they leave the spot on the brick where it once resided and the lettering around it? Do they plan on putting another in its place? So many questions – I love it!
Alright, I admit it, the angle was used to show off some of the great trim work along with keeping the main element in frame and the tone mapping process absolutely showed it off! Also the main reason the HDR process was used instead of a single image – nothing brings out textures more!
Really hope you’ve enjoyed our newly restored Union Depot as much as I’ve enjoyed sharing them! Thanks for taking a look!
