The Old Governor’s Mansion – Personal Office

The other day, I showed you an image of the governor’s office. Well, that was the fancy office, usually used when hosting meetings with important individuals. When the governor had personal business to attend to, he (sorry ladies, but Montana’s first female governor wasn’t elected until 2001, and this is the OLD governor’s mansion) would use this office. I pulled in tight on this shot to try for a different perspective. I like it. Also, like last time, I made a black and white version. I’m really digging these for this series… it just fits better. The color version (HDR) was used using the shadowmapping technique. It really darkened the wood a bit. I actually like the darker wood, but if you wanted it to look like the original, it’s not the best method to use. Alright, give it to me. What are your thoughts.
