Carnegie Music Hall Lobby

The main Carnegie Museums sit in the Oakland area of Pittsburgh.  Part of the museum includes the Carnegie Music Hall, which is a remarkable Italian Renaissance architectural design commissioned by Andrew Carnegie.  Construction was started in 1891 and it has been used for performance ever since.

Last spring, I called, emailed, and bugged the Events Coordinator until she allowed Brad, Dave, MJ and I access to photograph the inside of this amazing building.  Tonight’s photo is of the main lobby outside of the music all.  They had it setup for a wedding reception later in the day, which is a popular venue for receptions and events. 

I captured this photo with a 3 exposure auto-bracketed set of images (+1, 0, -1) and created the HDR image with Photomatix Pro.  If you ever get a chance to visit this location, please do so.  It is worth the time to walk the facility.   The attached museums are also great, but expect to spend more then a full day and you’ll still miss items.   For more information on the Carnegie Museums, click HERE.
