The Burlington Building - Print-a-Day-3

Mike Johnston of The Online Photographer suggested that you may improve your printing skills by printing a different photo every day, for 30 days. This is the third photo in the series of 30.

This is a detail from the interior courtyard of The Burlington Building. Originally built in 1879 as the Headquarters for the Burlington and Missouri River Railroad, this building has been remodeled several times, and is now general office space.

A skylight provides most of the light to the atrium. It’s supplemented by several electric globes. This extremely high contrast lighting was more difficult to photograph than to print. The HDR treatment compressed the high contrast range into a relatively flat, easier to print image.
