I took these HDR images inside the Monterey Bay Aquarium, south of the San Francisco Bay area…which is part of the famous Cannery Row buildings. You can see from the warehouse setup, this was once an active fish cannery, but now a beautiful aquarium on the bay. They bring in natural sea water in huge tanks for large fish and all types of sea creatures. I posted some of the aquarium images a few months ago here: http://www.carynesplin.com/monterey-bay-aquarium/
So this time I focused on showing the beauty and textures of the cannery setup. I love varied textures, colors and contrast. The light was pouring in through several skylights and large windows, so I could not resists doing some bracketing (shooting three different exposures) to try some HDR (high dynamic range) images.
