We don’t travel to cities very often. I’m more of a country mouse, I suppose.
Recently, we decided to try a few days in Charleston, South Carolina, having heard what a nice city it is for a number of reasons. Charleston did not disappoint in the least.
Tucked away in a remote corner of a park on the waterfront – a place where I’m sure nobody ever goes – we found this cute little fountain chugging away on a beautiful, warm night. It was our great fortune that there were no other people around. Nope, no one taking photos of the fountain itself; no one posing for wedding or engagement shots; no one walking into the frame; no kids jumping around in the water. Just me, Susan, and a camera.
(Just kidding. The park was loaded with humans!)
During a break in the activity around this icon of Charleston, I managed to fire off seven frames to merge in Photomatix to a 32-bit TIF, no tonemapping, ranging from 1/4s to 15s.
