Default Glass Hallway

I really loved this glass hallway in the Cleveland Art Museum.

Here is an HDR interpretation of the scene. Before someone states the obvious, it is "over-the-top" for lack of better words on purpose. I found the grunge look gave it an appeal. I am still working on a more realistic version i will share later when i nail it down to where i am happy.

C&C always welcome of course

As a "scene" this is most interesting. As a photograph, to me, it lacks something. I'm not crazy about the square cropping in this particular case either. I'd like to see your other version.

Interesting photo and well done. I'm going to nit pick about the sky looking straight out the window. It is a little over exposed in my opinion. Maybe a 7 or 9 HDR file would have helped, but this might not have been possible without the aid of a tripod...

The grunge look seems to compliment the picture in my opinion. I don't think its as unrealistic as many I've seen, and the somewhat overexposed sky outdoors helps to make it seem more realistic than it would without it, it doesn't bother me as much as such things often do. If it were the same tones as the reflections, I'd feel completely trapped in a maze. I love all the lines and strong graphics of the picture.

Bynx- thank you for the kind words. whenever i am putting together an HDR i alway look forward to your comments

Walter- I will try to mess the originals more later to see what I can come up with. i will play with the aspect ratio as well.

Ancient - 3 shots was about all I could handle hand-held in the musuem. i tried to fix the overexpose sky, even just a little, but there was no information there to work with. would have needed the tripod.

Mtngal- I appreciate your comments and for taking a different stance on the overexpose sky. i played with it trying to fix and never thought that it could be used to anchor the eye and not get trapped as you say.


It really is a beautiful building, and still under construction. I am looking forward to going back when more is complete, and can explore these glass and lines more thoroughly.

It's important to note than hdr works here mainly because you have points of fugue, which gives the sense of perspective. Otherwise it would be flat.

The small area of white sky is more than compensated for by the reflection of blue sky in the glass to the left.
