Citygarden (revisited)

So why another photobook on Citygarden in downtown St. Louis? Well, because I could!  No, seriously, the original book was published in 2009 and a lot has changed. Back then, Citygarden had just opened and all the trees, shrubs, plants and flowers were just starting to grow. The major sculpture ‘Big Suit’ has been added.  And finally, all of the photographs in this new edition were taken with a technique called HDR (High Dynamic Range), where multiple exposures (each with a different shutter speed ) are taken for each final photograph.  This brings out details in the shadows as well as in the highlights for amazing clarity.  To see a complete preview of this photobook, please check out the following website: http://www.blurb.com/b/7329979
