Image
Canon 10D, 17-40 f/4 @17mm, 1/50, 1/50, 1/60 sec., f/4, ISO:1600

Three shot panorama taken 12/20/05.

Lots of noise even Dfine 2 couldn't eliminate. Plenty of distortion that required a lot of transform work in PS and is still distorted.

Nonetheless, that pool made me dream of winning lotto for a long time!

This is, of course, the indoor pool (I'll post a picture of the outdoor pool another day) that Mr. William Randolph Hearst built for himself between 1919 and 1947 in what is today known as The Hearst Castle. It sits on 127 acres in San Simeon, CA.

Swim anyone?

Mike

What a gorgeous place! You got a great picture of it showing the opulence that is so evident. I wonder if it is a replica of some ancient Greek...whatever. I'll bet there is a lot of echo, should anyone dare to make a splash. ;).

Wow! Extravagance on exhibition. It is beautiful. You will need a full time staff to maintain it. Great job creating this beautiful image.

That's some pool! Like stepping back in time to ancient Rome, and if I'm not mistaken I can see a statue of Diana The Huntress beside the Roman bath. Oh how the other half lived, Mike - but even with all this wealth, it didn't bring happiness, did it. Great perspective - and image!

Cynthia, Ed, and Carol,

I always appreciate your (sometimes too kind) comments. I'm grateful but somewhat bemused that this image has been chosen as an editors' pick.

More images to come .. praiseworthy or not :D.
