I didn’t do this on purpose, but it seems as though I’ve completely bookended my trip with the first two photos I’m posting. Yesterday’s image was the first frame I took on the beach, and today’s HDR is the third to last set of brackets I shot before leaving Mexico.
This chess set is in the lobby of the Excellence Riviera Cancun where we spent our honeymoon. As soon as I walked in on the first day and saw these large table boards with the huge carved wooden playing pieces, I knew I had to get a shot of them before I left. I also knew I would be throwing on my 50mm to get some super shallow depth of field and some nice bokeh on some of those playing pieces. I don’t usually choose to go with an angled frame, but I thought it would work nicely here, and I wasn’t disappointed.
