Kathryn and I visited Boston this past weekend for work. Before we left town we caught a Red Sox game in historic Fenway Park.
As visiting legend Derek Jeter stepped to the plate in the first inning, I bracketed a few photos of the park at sundown (top photo). At the time, I convinced myself I wouldn't need another image of Fenway, anticipating a hard-to-beat HDR result. And it is quite spectacular.
But later that night I lazily snapped a pair of pictures from the grandstands, and when editing the lot, one caught my eye (bottom photo).
I'm left thinking the bottom image is better — more artistic, less Fenway brochure.
Satisfaction is for the birds.

A bird made this stunningly intricate nest in a shrub just outside our window. A bird!
This particular bird we call Crimson, Kathryn named her. Just this morning, three baby Cardinals hatched, not yet named.
