Week 37 – First Reformed Church of Rocky Hill

I was in town getting an early morning coffee. I hadn’t photographed anything all week and I was worried that I might not have anything for my weekly project. I’ve always wanted an HDR photograph of the First Reformed Church of Rocky Hill but usually, there are cars parked along the road.

I’m not happy with the composition of this image of the First Reformed Church of Rocky Hill. The Nikkor 18-55mm lens produced too much distortion in the image, especially in the trees and steeple area. There was a good breeze which moved the leaves and small tree limbs enough to cause some issues in combining the images.

To me, this image is a failure but … there is always the next time and hopefully, I won’t be rushed. I’ll take time to get a composition I like and hopefully remember my auto-bracketing Raspberry Pi hack. The bracketing for this was done manually.

  • Camera: Nikon D40
  • Lens : AFS Nikkor 18-55 mm f/3.5-5.6
  • Software : Adobe Lightroom 4, HDR Efex Pro
