Wilson Hall stands at the head of the James Madison University (JMU) quad in Harrisonburg, Virginia. The building was built in 1931 and named in honor of President Wilson, who was born a few miles away.
So I decided to use the beautiful steeple of this church to play around with rustic texturing, since it’s been a while since my last such post. I was purposely trying to be a little off in the composition, but strayed a bit too far (or not far enough) for my liking on most of the shots. Still, there is something about the off-balanced second shot that grabs me–the lower half of the frame is perfectly in-line, but the top half appears to be falling out of view. It’s an inconsistency I was striving for, but a lack of proper execution that led to most looking more like bad photography than artful rebellion.
Despite my feelings towards HDR photography, it’s been a while since I posted one, so here’s a shot of the North Church in Portsmouth, NH at sunrise.
Thompson Hall (or “T-Hall”) is the central building on the quad of University of New Hampshire in Durham, New Hampshire. It was built in 1892, and was named after Benjamin Thompson, who donated his farmer estate to be used as a college campus.
