good detail, i like the way it brings out the individual windows. hdr work at night like this is difficult to pull off without tons of noise, this one was handled nicely.

I believe the CN Tower is about 550 meters high. Now here is an interesting thing I noticed yesterday which Im going to be complaining to the owners of the tower. With all the windows there is lots of light so white walls are absolutely not necessary. There are double rows of windows running around the observation deck in a 360 circle. One row of windows are parallel to the ground and at eye level for someone 5-6 feet. The lower row of windows are on an angle of about 30 to the ground so when looking down at the ground you are looking straight through the glass. The ceiling of the room is white. So here is the problem. When you shoot through any of the lower windows the ceiling is reflected in the glass. There is also a steel railing around the room in front of the windows for some reason. Well the inside of the railing reflects off the windows as well. If the ceiling were black or dark brown or dark blue it wouldnt be reflected. The inside part of the railing could be darkened as well. There is just no thought at all the anyone taking pictures from up there. Which is exactly why a lot of people go up there. Corporate brains in action. By the way there was a lot of reflection in the pic I posted. I fixed most of it but you can still see some in the top right corner. Also there is a lack of definition in the overall shot because of the reflection factor.

I never noticed any of it, until you mentioned it. The shot is so striking that it doesn't detract much from the very good result.

Nice pick Bynx. The neon red there is striking and very well composed.
