The theme of “Wide” was perfect for our field trip to the Utah State Capitol Building that I shared a few images from in a recent post. I’ve wanted to get a wide shot of the Rotunda for a long time and having a Fishseye lens finally allowed me to really get it all in. This view is from directly underneath the Capitols Rotunda an impressive structure in its own right  the artwork surrounding it depicts scenes of Utah history. The beautiful marble used in the construction of the building is perfect for HDR images as its texture really pops! The orientation of this shot is that North is down, and East is right. The portions of murals you see in each end are over  the Supreme Court to the right and the House of Representatives to the left.

Turning 90° we get this view with North to the left Getting that chandelier centered was a challenge as it looks really small in the viewfinder.

A few more shots of the interior of the Capitol as we walked around, all shots were 3 shot HDR Handheld with the 8mm Rokinon Fisheye.

The circular pattern on the floor is actually glass blocks that allow light to the floor beneath.
