Ernest Kadel was the head modeler at the Gladding McBean Architectural Terra Cotta factory in Lincoln, California until his sudden and untimely death in 1959. As a testimony to their respect for him, his fellow employees have left his office just as it was on his last day there.

The room's rich detail makes for a fascinating photography subject. To capture that detail, this High-Dynamic-Range QTVR image was created by taking photos at f22 over a range of eight shutter speeds from 1/15 second to 8 seconds. Seven 12-megapixel photos at each exposure were used to make eight different panoramas. Those panoramas were then combined using Adobe Photoshop's "high dynamic range processing" before being converted to a QTVR.

The occasion was a photography workshop sponsored by the Viewpoint Photographic Art Center of Sacramento, California.
