Charles Krug Winery (Napa, CA)

While still working for my old AV company I did an event at the Charles Krug Winery up past St. Helena, CA. Nice place to go see but not much happening at this place.

I went in September on the 19th this was a little before it started getting darker earlier in the evening. After setting the show I manged to get back to my truck and snag my camera and tripod for some pretty good pics. The only downside was that all the people attending the event had shown up so now there were cars filling the parking lot. So by the time everyone else got out of the shot well it was around 6:30PM and the lighting was just perfect.

So I took my first round of shots. Just snapping away as the sun set I didn’t mind that I would have to drive a crappy old truck back to the office in the dark with headlights that only outperform candles. Around 10 Minutes before dark I decided to set up for a HDR shot of the place. Bracketing the camera -1+ I shot a few rounds of this and then went on my way home.

So here it is first regular with some minor touchup and minimal coloring.

And now the HDR image.
