Everyone knows Alcatraz, it’s the old high security penitentiary on the island near San Francisco. It was where Al Capone was put in prison. The island is also famous due to films like "The Birdman from Alcatraz" and the more recent film "The Rock".
Today, the island is a tourist attraction, reachable by ferry. The ride takes about 30 minutes and you are free to roam the island. It is a great place for photography, with wonderful views of San Francisco, that is . . . if the weather cooperates.
I find it particularly good for HDR as I really like what the tonemapping process does to brick walls, concrete floors and the like. So here are a few different views of the place. A variety of applications were used, in particular: Topaz (a Photoshop plugin), PhotoMatix and Dynamic Photo HDR.
