Ahhhh, Belchertown State School. I’ll never forget first walking into this auditorium with my good ol’ comrade,. Our jaws dropped, we looked at each other, and just nodded. We killed hours here like it was minutes. This is a 27-exposure tone-mapped HDR shifted pano image taken with my trusty 17mm T/S lens. I took it back in 2010. Bob and I made subsequent visits here – some more fruitful than others, but none were as fun or as memorable as this first time. While I’m surrounded with a lifetime of amazing things to shoot here in PDX, this location in Massachusetts will always have a fond parking space in my heart. Le sigh.

This is a combo of Gum Bichromate, Thermopylae and Return of the King, all blended in Perfect Effects 4 by.
Final touches were applied in Lightroom 4.2
