Looking up at the Lyric

One of the many reasons we went to the Baltimore Artscape last sunday was to attend a free performance of the Koresh Dance Company from Philidelphia at the Lyric Opera House here in Baltimore. Every time I go to an old theater I have a habit of getting shots of the ceiling. In fact it’s always the first thing I do, which is a good thing because my shots of the dancers (fantastic performance) were ruined by some girl with a fat head. I initially thought my shots were fine, that is until I got home and found that almost all of my shots of the performance were rendered useless by this big fuzzy black spot on the left side of the frame. Oh well, at least I got this shot of the ceiling.

    • Thank you Robin. It is amazing the amount of detail they put into ceiling like this. It’s as if they do just to make one look up.

  1. Wow great shot, if you hadn’t said it was a ceiling I would have had to look at it for a while to figure it out, great concept. The chandelier reminds me of a woman’s broach ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Even “content aware” fill with photoshop won’t help with big fuzzed heads. Excellent work here with this ceiling as I know from experience this is hard to pull off to maintain squareness & symmetry.

    • Thank you Brandon. I tired everything to fix those shots and, as you well know sometimes you just have to give up that ghost and move on.
