Titanic Gift Shop

An image of Titanic gift shop in Venice Beach, located towards the northern end closer to Santa Monica. I took this image on the fly as I had already set my camera to auto bracket and the ISO pretty high as this was a handheld HDR. While processing the image I noticed the sign that asks for $1 donation for pictures which I never saw back then; I was focused on the whole store setup and not just the statue! Had I seen the sign I probably would not have paid to take this particular shot but if I was taking detailed pictures of the actual statue I think I would give them $5 :), would you have paid to take this image?

  1. Colourful! 🙂 Nope, would not have paid. It is a public sidewalk, after all.
