Pikes Place Market in Seattle decorated for the holidays. We had a little rain so there is a reflection
on the cobblestone street. Taken 12-15-13 around 7 AM.

Thanks for looking

I'm really impressed you were able to snap a photo off without throngs of people in your image. I really love #1. It almost looks like it should be a holiday card.

Thanks for the comments.

The key to getting a shot at Pike Place Market is to get there very early
on a Sunday around 6:30 to 7:00 AM. There are very few delivery trucks on Sunday.

I took the photo with a Fuji XE-1 ISO 200 with the kit lens which is 18-55mm. The lens was set at 28.9 mm,
I really didn't choose this setting it just worked when I zoomed it. The F stop is f7.1 which is
kind of odd as well. I would normally have shot this at f8 for f5.6, but it worked.
I maybe needed a cup of coffee.

The first photo an 8 photo HDR that is set at 1 stop apart and converted to an HDR in
Photomatix Pro. I wanted to bring out the detail but still wanted the photo to look as close
natural that I could make it. Hopefully it worked.

The second photos is 1 shot from out of the camera.

Thanks for looking

Outstanding (and restrained) use of HDR. It didn't jump out at me but it clearly helped create a better image. Bravo!

I like them. Did you have to erase anything out of the shot? I wanna see your gum wall shots now!

Nothing was removed or erased from the shots. I did straighten the last photo a little but other than that they
are full image size.

Thanks for the comments.

I took the photos between 6:30 and 7:00 AM on a Sunday morning. If you get there early and
especially on a Sunday there are few to no delivery trucks in the area. At that time of morning
there are few people as well.

Thanks for looking

Very well done. You're missing a little highlight detail in the second shot but otherwise even the one-shot image works quite well.

I'd say your early morning venture paid off in spades. Both great but #1 gets the blue ribbon.

Great shots! I would not have pegged the first as HDR, so well played! I love the reflections on the pavement!

Happy new year!

Great subtle use of HDR and nice calming capture for such a busy place.
