Mayernik - Pittsburgh Wedding Receptions

What a beautiful reception hall!  As the night was winding down, I grabbed a few images of the beautiful Mayernik Reception Hall.  The lights glowed beautifully in the night and there was a very faint light coming from a cloud covered moon. Both views were taken with the Nikon D300s and the Tamron 17-50 utilizing five bracketed stops to create the image.  The second image was completed utilizing Nik Silver efex pro 2 and Nik HDR efex pro.

Personally, I like the look of the black and white version but that is because I like the soft tones created in the black and white.

Either way, I had a great time creating and designing the images.  This is an another example of a beautiful place within an hour drive from my house.

A few tips:  Typically, I have a tripod in my vehicle at all times.  I have a day backpack that I carry one camera body, a few memory cards, 17-50, 35mm, and 70-300vr.  I recommend carrying your camera with you at all times.  Carrying a tripod might not work depending on what else you have in your vehicle.

These images were taken at the end of the night after a wedding.  The wedding was at Victory Family Church and the reception was at the Mayernik.
