This is a black and white edit of the shot posted earlier of the bridge at Graceland Cemetery.
This is the Schoenhofen Pyramid Mausoleum, burial site of Peter Schoenhofen.. Apparently Schoenhofen was a brewer. He must have sold some good beers.
This is the bridge to the burial area of architect Daniel Burnham. Although there are gravestones far more expansive than that of Daniel Burnham, his family has a sort of private island on the lake in the cemetery.
I turned the "Clown Vomit" setting to 11 in photoshop on this one. In all seriousness, if you haven't noticed, I've been going for a more of a realistic post-processing edit than my older work, this one I decided to bring out the extreme post processing techniques. What do you think?
This is the burial site of William Kimball. Apparently Kimball was a piano salesman. He must have sold some nice pianos.
With Halloween coming up, I am going to be doing a week of photos from Graceland Cemetery. I went to Graceland shortly before sunset and shot for about 90 minutes. The park is huge and there is so much to see here. I ended up staying a couple minutes past close, and the gate was locked when I went to leave, for a moment I thought I was locked in until a couple minutes later a security guard came by and let me leave.
This is a shot from my recent photo shoot atop the Tribune Tower. Not only does this place offer spectacular views, but the architectural details of the Veranda are spectacular. Here is a long exposure looking straight up.
And today's shot is facing east from the Tribune Tower. This is a 114 second exposure with a 3.0 ND filter. I really wanted to capture the intense movement of the clouds with this one.
Special thanks to Julie for getting me access to one of the best views in all of Chicago. This photo was taken from the 25th floor of Tribune Tower. I had so much fun shooting up here and watching the light in the city go from day time to sunset to blue hour and night.
I took this shot during my lunch break just off the terrace of my work building. This is really the first success I've had using 2 ND filters stacked to get a long exposure during the middle of the day. This is a 30 second exposure taken with 2 stacked 3.0 ND filters.
