Very nice. It's almost inviting me to dive chest first onto the shiny floor.

I like how this came out. Having the windows be more or less blown out is realistic - you've captured enough detail of the windows themselves and the way it is gives you the feeling of intense light streaming in through them, lighting up the whole interior. The funny thing is that I probably would have tried to have blue windows, and looking at your picture makes me think that my approach would have been all wrong.

G'day mate

Dunno what 'KC' station is but that doesn't matter ...
It's a spectacular image which to my eye you have recorded beautifully, and the "vertical verticals" make it all the more professional

I'm envious 'cos we don't have places like this down in Aussie land

You know, vvcarpio probably would have done twice as many exposures, and the blown-out windows wouldn't have been blown out.

This was, as you might guess, a stitch, so I had to do an HDR for each image in the stitch, and then put them together.

I would try your idea of saving the sky, but the work....

I don't think it would be half as effective, it would look too fake if you had tried for blue sky in the windows. And you are right, it would have been a huge amount of additional work, thought etc. I think it looks far more natural the way you did it here. Now if the windows were stained glass, that would be a different matter...

G'day again ...

Looking at this image again - and again I'm having second thoughts about it ...

How about you make is a 30" x 40" print and jigsaw it for total confusion for the poor bugga who likes puzzles???

It really is a 'magic' image regardless of other considerations
