The statue at the entrance to McNeese St University in Lake Charles, LA. The statue, titled “An Honest Day’s Work,” was designed by Fred Fellows of Sonoita, Ariz. He is known for Western figure-genre paintings and sculpture that commemorate cowboy life. The sculpture, which depicts an 1870-to-1880s-period cowboy, was selected because it resembled the university’s logo. It stands 11 feet tall without the base and is 9 feet 6 inches long and 7 feet wide. It weighs about 2,800 pounds.
This is a 3 exposure handheld HDR shot of Times Square in New York on a really cloudy, overcast night. It really is an amazing place to witness at night. So much flashing before your eyes and so many people rushing around. When I left my car earlier in the day, it was raining, and was supposed to continue all night. I decided not to lug my tripod around all day if I was not going to be able to use it. I guess I learned my lesson, I will always have it with me in the future. But I think this turned out OK for a handheld shot. Let me know what you think.
This is the first of a large series of photos that I took this weekend for Champeaux, Evans, Hotard Architects in Lake Charles, LA (www.champeaux.biz for information).
