Galveston, Tx., Christmas 2011. Many of the buildings in Galveston's historic downtown are sided with brick. Over the years the buildings have been used to sell different products, and if you look closely you'll see that the old signs have been painted over with the new ads. As the colors weather, some of the old can be seen beneath the most recent paint. This HDRI was taken on a solid overcast cold misty Christmas morning, when the streets were quiet. Exposure was +2, spot on, -2 and processed in Photomatix ver 4.1.
