Pineapple Fountain, Charleston, S.C.   10 comments

Pineapple Fountain, Charleston, S.C.


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.

  9. Super capture of this fountain. You certainly pulled out all the light with your 7 frames. Nicely done.

  10. I’m actually relocating to Charleston from NJ for business, so I’ve been researching the location and things to do online, as well as browsing charleston sc homes for sale. What would you say your favorite thing about the area is? Also, are there any areas you would recommend looking for homes in, or avoiding?
