Don't fret, it's just Charles Ford's photography blog.

Keeper of the Plains HDR

This is another of Wichita’s downtown landmarks, which I have posted images of before.   The Keeper of the Plains by native American sculptor Blackbear Bosin.   This is a three exposure HDR tonemapped in Photomatix, followed by a Lightroom monochrome conversion,  and layering in Photoshop Elements to retain some color in the Keeper.  It sounds so convoluted when I write it out,  but it is not all that sophisticated.   This vantage point could benefit from raising the camera position 15 or 20 feet higher, but that’s impractical here, at least without jockeying a very tall step ladder around, which I suspect the city would frown upon.

    You picked the perfect day to photograph this, Charles. I rather like this vantage point as it makes the sculpture look more prominent. Is that the Museum in the bottom center? Wichita is a beautiful city and it looks like the people have a keen eye for public art.
