Description This shot was taken on the way home from a motorcycle trip to Dayton, OH. My buddy was getting a little ticked off at my wanting to stop to take this shot, as we tried to outrun the rain. Am I glad we stopped !!! This looked like an old church, that someone then had used as a residence for years. I LOVE the red leather chair on the porch, and the sky was just perfect for HDR. Taken with Nikon D300 and Tokina 12-24mm lens. Post processing included HDR treatment, and some dodge & burn.
Andreas Mueller, Chesapeake Member Since December 2009 Artist Statement Born and raised in Germany, relocated to the US in 1984. I'm a former US paratrooper with the 82nd Airborne Division, now working with high-end UNIX systems. I consider myself an advanced amateur digital photographer with inspirations to do this for a living someday.
My gear consists of a Nikon D300 & D200, multiple Nikon and third party lenses, Nikon SB800 Speedlight and Feisol Carbon Fibre tripod with a Gitzo head. Just like many others here, I love taking pictures of varying subject matters, although I'm beginning to become partial to HDR, wildlife, night photography and aviation related images.
