I was back up at school again this week to start work on what I think will be my master’s thesis. The project involves different types of sensors that will be mounted on a high clearance vehicle and will be used to rapidly determine plant traits (phenotype) of field crops. My job is to set up the sensors. School starts in about ten days and I’ll be even more busy then, but I’m hoping that this blog doesn’t get neglected again.
The Lonely Tower
The first day of Thanksgiving Break, it was a nice out, so I took a stroll around the K-State campus. Many of the buildings have this rough, white limestone exterior. The texture of the weathered walls and the cone-shaped roof reminds me of a castle with tall, lonely towers.
One of the nice things about HDR is it tends to bring out the details in a photograph. So if your shooting a highly textured subject like the limestone, it really emphasizes the coarseness of the rock and brings out all the bumps, dings, scratches and sharp edges.
Some details about this photo:
Camera: Pentax K-5
