Nice and Cold in Albany, New York

I had occasion to bring a camera to what was billed as the tree lighting ceremony next to the State Capitol at the Empire State Plaza in Albany, New York. Despite being a nice sunny day the temperatures were in the mid 20's with a wind chill in the mid teens.

 I brought along a Canon 7D with a Sigma 30mm f/1.4 EX DC HSM lens. It was too cold to hang around for the actual tree lighting but there were other attractions taking place both inside and outside. Here a couple of shots from right around sunset.

The last shot is a 3 image hand held HDR +/- 1.5 EV with the caption information being for the normally exposed image. Processing was with HDRSoft's Photomatix Essentials using the Painterly 5 preset.
