My mom is visiting from Florida. I wanted to take her into 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 ( it was a wet 68ºC outside ) but we 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 walked the Princeton University campus before.

We parked in the Spring Street deck and 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 ivy on 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 images brackets at ±1 and tone-mapped in Photomatix Pro. It wasn’t until after I had processed the images that I realized that I had 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.
