Default Domino Sugar Factory in Baltimore, MD (HDR, Night, Purdy Colors))

I've been taking walks after work and bringing my gear with me. Captured this one last night. Subtle use of HDR, I don't like to go overboard. Intentionally kept the picture dark with high contrast, as that is how I like it. This is a 12-shot panorama (each of the 12 shots were created with seven one-stop increment shots)

Thanks for looking!



Non-HDR version below for comparison

that's a great shot and a great job in putting them together. So let me under understand ... you took 7 photos of 12 sections each = 84 shots

its a cool shot but I'm not seeing what was gained by doing the hdr.
I would think you could have captured this with a single long exposure.

Yessir. Not as daunting as it sounds, I only had to press the shutte button 12 times. The rest of the shots were auto-bracketed.

Well then I've acheived my goal . I don't really want it to look like HDR.

I'll have to post a non-HDR panorama of my best exposure to show the difference. I'll try to remember to do that later.

I love the shot, think you have done a cracking job... and i understand why you have used HDR for this, it gives it that cool neon feeling when you see it with HDR.

Nice work
