Royal Praline Company, New Orleans, LA
Lately I haven't been able to get out and shoot any pictures. More about that in another post sometime, but for right now I thought I'd put up a shot from my recent trip to New Orleans. This is the Royal Praline Company located right in the French Quarter. It was one of the many places we stopped while wandering around there. Pralines are a "cookie-sized candy made of brown sugar and butter and pecans" (according to wordnetweb.princeton.edu/perl/webwn) that is big in the south, if you like that sort of thing. Myself, I'm not too particular to them. However, I do like pecan pie. Weird? I think so, but that's me. Anyway, while my wife and friends were in there checking everything out, I decided to get a shot of the place. Here you go and thanks for visiting.
This shot was processed as usual. However, this was only a 3 shot bracket due to the fact that right after I took the first set, a bunch of people started milling around the entrance obstructing my shot. Doggone tourists! Wait... nevermind.
Other setting include:
Camera: Nikon D90
Lens: Sigma 10-20mm f/4-5.6D EX DC HSM Autofocus Zoom
Exposure Bias: -0.00
Focal Length: 10mm
Mode: Aperture Priority
