I spent the last couple of days in San Antonio shooting the missions for a series of photos for our good friends Pep and Patricia. This is the facade of Mission San Jose, which is open to the public until 8:00 p.m. through the summer. With my great photo assistants, Kim and Robert, we scouted the four missions and I shot about 16 gigabytes and nearly 900 images over a two-day period. There were alot of bracketed exposures mixed in to that total, so there were probably 350 unique images. I had the idea of doing alot of HDR and expanded dynamic range stuff with these images, and probably will in the future, but this first one is a single exposure. You just can't beat great light. In Photoshop, I shifted the sky a little to give it a warmer tone just because I thought it complimented the golden tones on the building better.
I've also changed the look of the blog - white background, black text, and a new frame for the image. I'd be interested in comments about the image and any other of the blog changes.
