I'm a young aspiring photographer that has a sweet tooth for HDR photography.

King of the Bean



A few weekends ago I visited downtown Chicago with the family.  Of course we had to do the touristy thing and visit “The Bean”.  I know there are thousands of awesome photos of the landmark but I had to capture my very own shots.  The last time I visited this space, I had no idea what HDR was.  I believe that trip was one of my first with a Digital SLR.  Back then I wasn’t happy with my photography because the photos weren’t turning out the way I was seeing the environment.  It was later, just before I left for Germany this past summer that I ran across Trey Ratcliff’s photo blog.  This changed the way I view the world of photography forever.

  1. Cool shot. You’re framing almost makes it look like a large bubble reflecting it’s surroundings. Great comp bud.

  2. Nice comp on this. I like the reflection and how the bean doesn’t take over the whole scene. Nicely done.

  3. Great job capturing a unique composition. It’s a great contrast between the old building and the bean. Really well done.
