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.
Thanks so much for stopping by, if you have pictures of your state capitol building I’d love to see them also, so please feel free to share a link to them in the comments.
