Brief Directions

Notes

Given the dynamic range of the scene, I captured three exposures one stop apart and after adjustment in Adobe Lightroom, combined them in Photomatix HDR software.

Description

For this composition I used a low camera position, wide angle lens and upward angle to create the illusion of a Subway-like eroded passage. In reality the "ceiling" was a slightly overhanging ledge about 3-4 feet high. I took shelter from the midday sun here, and was looking for something to do, so I envisioned some interesting compositions to shoot.
