Korean Pagoda

I have shot this Pagoda before at Meadowlark Gardens before. Not sure if I did it from this angle and because I have been in transit for the last 24 hours it’s a quick edit.

I shot this on my Nikon D5500 as I was learning to use it. Didn’t have any DX lenses for it so used my Sigma 24-105 FX lens. Did a great job but a little longer than I like with the crop. I picked up a Sigma 17-80 shortly after this which I have been shooting with. The camera with its flip out screen makes it a great video camera. Sure it doesn’t shoot 4K but it will does a very good looking HD.

Editing I mixed in some HDR and a lot of my normal workflow. Used a lot of gradients to bring the light down. Then set the contrast and overall exposure in Photoshop. Once I had those adjustments brought it into Aurora 2017 and just bumped some HDR settings to bring out the inside features. Then called it done.

    The Korean Pagoda at Meadowlark Gardens is interesting. I am curious to know if one can sit inside/under the Pagoda? The Meadowlark Gardens seem to have a large Korean influence throughout the many gardens. Although I have never been to the park, I have learned a lot and the gardens are most beautiful. I enjoyed.
