From a trip to Nimes back in August, this is the interior of the Modern Art Museum. I previously posted a picture of the outside (here) and have been waiting for the chance to process some more of these shots. The museum was designed by a master of modern commercial architecture, Lord Norman Foster (designer of the “Gerkin” Office building in London) and built in 1993.
This image is a 3 frame HDR, tonemapped and then layered and altered in Photoshop to give it a painted (almost like an architects impression) feeling. I wasn’t allowed to use a tripod inside, so I had the camera balanced on the top railing – not a time to fumble!
You need to zoom in to appreciate some parts of the image as all the walls, floors, steps and railing panels are in glass!!
There’s lots of layers of glass in this, mixed with the relections from outside including the table and chairs at a cafe across the street.
