English Barley Field Sunset...

Ok first off, photographing the English countryside is a royal PITA. All of the roads have these thorny bushes that extend like 10 feet high, so when you reach the top of a hill and expect to see a nice open landscape, thats just not the case 9 times out of 10. Im assuming these bushes are here for 3 reasons, first, they act as sound dampening for the roads to keep noise pollution to a minimum. Secondly, the keep cars from running off the road, and lastly, they keep people for trespassing on their land and stealing their crops. I totally understand the concept, but it makes it really difficult for taking pictures of the rolling English countryside from the roadside. Anyways, after 3 days of complete overcast on our trek through southwestern England, the sky had opened up a bit and I had a feeling that sunset would be a good one. In England at this time of year, sunset isnt till around 9:45pm, and since you are pretty far north, it last's forever and doesn't get totally dark till around 11:30pm. Armed with this knowledge and fully realizing that I was in a completely foreign country and had no idea where to go, I headed out at about 6pm. I started driving around, thinking I had plenty of time to find a workable composition that had a north western view so I could see the sunset. Boy was I wrong! I drove around for the next 3 hours, desperately searching for a view that I liked as the time slowly slipped away. At around 9:20, I started getting worried that I wasnt going to find a location I was satisfied with and time was starting to slip away. The one route that I was fully confident about took me to three military roads that all had signs saying, "Authorized Military Personnel only, Deadly force is authorized to all trespassers" or something along those lines. Definitely not going to chance that, lol. I continued on and continued west down motorway M26, thinking that all of this effort was going to be for not. It was just then that I past an opening in the thick bushes in the side of the road and this barley field came into view. I quickly grabbed the e-brake on the little stick shift Peugeot 207 rental car, skidded around while downshifting to first, then quickly turned around and parked the grass next to the opening. I grabbed my camera and hopped the fence into this field of barley, setup my tripod and relaxed a bit while I got to witness this amazing sunset.

LaSalle Street Blue Hour Panoramic...

Pictured here is LaSalle street, which is the heart of the financial district here in Chicago. The street was nicknamed "The Canyon" due to the tall, steep buildings that lie on both ends of the relatively narrow street, with the Chicago Board of Trade Building as the abrupt end of the apparent box canyon. LaSalle was one of three streets in Chicago to have a tunnel under the Chicago River, the other two being Washington and Van Buren. Constructed in 1869-71 and originally open only to private vehicles and pedestrians, the 2000 foot long tunnel alleviated interruptions from bridge openings due to heavy river traffic. It also served as an escape route during the Great Chicago Fire of 1871. In the 1880's, the LaSalle tunnel was turned over to cable car companies since they couldn't span the bridges that opened. More improvements were made in 1906, when the tunnel was deepened and widened. It reopened 5 years later to electric street car traffic in 1911. The tunnel was closed permanently in 1939 to make way for subway construction, which now continues to be the heart of Chicago's mass transit system.

I have a question. How do I get rid of halo effect around buildings? I usually create an HDR image using 3 exposures. I've tried different settings in Photomatix, tried both tone mapping and exposure fusion. But I can't always eliminate it. I don't have Photoshop, only Gimp. :(
