Stairway to…

After finally finishing the last of my Lightroom data transfer to my iMac last night, I decided to sift through some of my old brackets from early this year to see if there was anything I missed or wanted to reprocess. As it turns out, there are probably a whole lot of images that could use some TLC! My HDR processing skills have increased quite a bit since earlier this year, and it was a bit painful looking at some of the images I had created.

This particular shot was a bit of a white balance nightmare. The natural light coming from the doorway behind the camera and the window at the top of the frame was at odds with the warm incandescent light coming from the light fixtures. I was able to deal with this by masking two copies of the same image together with different white balance values. Now that I know how to fix this problem, I will probably process some more shots from this cool old apartment building in Calgary!
