POTD day 54 Rusty car inside a coffee shop

Wednesday February 23, 2011


Today I went to meet someone in the city hall area, and they didn't show (but did call later). While walking around I decided to stop for a coffee at my favorite coffee chain here in Korea - Caffe Bene. The atmosphere is generally good and the coffee is better than the average place including Starbucks. This particular branch which is in a building next to the Seoul Finance Center had this full sized car sitting in the middle of the floor. The back of the car is filled with sacks of coffee beans. Unfortunately the shot I took to catch that didn't end up being very good. I was also a litle constrained by all the people in the shop. I ended up shooting at high iso, f3.2, no flash and hand held at a relatively slow shutter speed. Fortunately it came out - I'm even happier that I was able to HDR using three exposures of 0, +/- 1 2/3 stops. A larger version is available on flickr.
