Photo of the Day: Nice Pipes!

Pipe Organ at the Cadet Chapel, USAFA (click to enlarge)

I returned to the USAF Academy yesterday determined to photograph the interior of the Cadet Chapel. The pipe organ has over 4000 pipes! I first consulted Google Earth, to determine when the sun would be illuminating the chapel’s western side. I then called ahead, to make sure there were no unplanned services this day. I brought my tripod, D3s, and two lenses; the 14-24mm AFS G Nikkor and the 24-70mm AFS G Nikkor. This shot was with the 24-70mm at 24mm. I made a 5-shot exposure sequence and blended the images in HDR Efex Pro. Final processing was with Capture NX 2. Hope you like it!
