Los Angeles Department of Water and Power Fountains

Believe it or not this image was really difficult to process! The light intensity of the purple fountains through my 5D mkII for an exposure loopty loop! Even at a -2 exposure the fountain lights were still blowing out so I had to grab a -4 exposure just to get something close to what my eyes were seeing when I looked at the fountains. After that I used a luminance mask technique in photoshop to bring the fountains back in to balance with the base exposure to balance everything out. All in all I think it turned out pretty well!
