I have a soft spot for Santa Fe, NM. It's an incredible little town and offers a lot of interesting things to point your camera at. There are some fabulous chapels and cathedrals, lots of adobe architecture, and not far from town you have the choice of wide open western vistas or high-altitude mountain vistas. The choices are endless really. And there is color everywhere. Oh, and the skies...the skies are just great out there.
This is the entrance to the Inn and Spa at Loretto, which is a boutique hotel just a short stroll to the Plaza (their town square). I just love this entrance. There is the adobe, lovely flowers that give a nice pop of color, and that fabulously blue New Mexico sky. I shoot this every time I visit, and will continue to do so. It's just beautiful, don't you think??
And just for fun, here's another HDR Before & After so you can see what bits of magic HDR pulls from the scene!
