Wow! That sure came out beautifully. You still have the feel of the night lights, but have a bit of detail in the sky, I like it.

the ominous sky gives this shot a nice sense of grandeur to these buildings.

What a picture Bynx. I really like the detail in the sky and how the lighting on the buildings are perfectly enhanced through the hdr process.

Thanks for your comments. This pic was not taken during the golden hour, but rather much later. The sky was as black as black but with the max. 4 second exposure it was able to bring out some of the cloud details. What I particularly liked was the subtle colors of the lights cast on the building.

A very good example of what can be produced, using the HDR-technique. Nigth-shots (shot i totally darkness) with details in the sky and on the bright lit fassades of the high-rise!

A good one, this!

This is one nice shot Bynx - I like the fact that you have great details not just in the building, but even in the sky!
