    Not very dynamic...:wtc:

    Took from inside through a window...not really happy with the way it looks. Window is filthy just like the rest of the city. :wtc:

    ohh I like it very much, the city looks so impressively alive..

    I do however hate the two buildings in the foreground, have them move a bit :)

    Technique? Masking or an HDR program?

    Detroit crew holla! What floor was that on the RenCen? Nice shot!

    You can't see my work though (HFH), it's only 17 stories. Must be off to the left too much.

    And goddamn that new casino add-on. It totally ruins the view of the skyline when you're driving down 96.:madfawk:

    three raw pictures a +1, 0, -1 EV and run through photoshop HDR. Painted over the two tops of the buildings on the left and right and made the sky a gradient because those three areas looked really fucked up from dirt on the outside of the window.

    Then I did some levels, curves corrections, a touch of shadow/highlight, a touch of noise reduction and some smart sharpening.

    Yeah it might be a little left....the horizon seemed pretty flat before I replaced the sky with a gradient. I think it might be a little off and along with the fact that I am not shooting straight down the grid of streets and all the roads kind of slant across the picture. :dunno:

    Yeah I haven't been to the new casino yet or the add-on....Greektown is where I do all my gambling. It has a dingy feel to it but it isn't that bad...

    Edit: 64th floor of the hotel
