East Pyne Hall at Princeton University

Moses Taylor Pyne (December 21, 1855 – April 22, 1921), was a financier and philanthropist, and one of Princeton University's greatest benefactors and most influential trustees.

My mom is visiting from Florida. I wanted to take her to Princeton. She's visited several times over the years, but I've never taken her on a tour of Princeton University. The weather wasn't great (damp and 20ºC), but the weekend weather forecast wasn't much better. I took my camera -- just in case I found something interesting. I didn't have high hopes since. I have often walked across the Princeton University campus, but this time felt special.

We parked in the Spring Street deck, walked up Tulane to Nassau, and entered the campus near the Firestone Library. I took several shots of the trees along Nassau, but the green of the climbing vine on East Pyne Hall caught my eye. I took several shots, some wide and some zoomed in. This one felt right to me.

The final image is an HDR from three image brackets at ±1 and tone-mapped in Photomatix Pro. It wasn't until after I had processed the photos that I shot my whole set in JPG with my D5100 set to FINE. That was the setting I had used last weekend while running a photo booth at a martial arts tournament. I think the results might have been better if I had RAW images.
