Talk about challenges! To tell the story about this facility, I wanted to show not only the offices (lower right), the elevated walkway, and the acoustic panels on the ceiling, but also a view out the windows on the right (to show some features of the local neighborhood) and the windows on the left (to show one of the wings of this school and a hint of the city beyond). In addition, the light through the windows was extremely bright, while the areas around the offices and down the hall were quite dim. To capture all of these elements in one image, I had to use both panoramic stitching and high-dynamic-range techniques, combining and blending a total of sixteen individual exposures.
