Many years ago I tried to photograph this building and failed miserable but after several years of practice it was wonderful to shot it again and really show off how wonderful and unique the building truly is.
How this shot was made:
Canon 5dmkII, Canon 16-35mm 2.8L II 16mm, f8, ISO 640, 10sec(Base Exposure)
5 bracketed exposures taken on location. Merged using the "Merge to 32-bit HDR" plugin. Basic adjustments in Lightroom before taking it into Photoshop for further adjustments. Used NIK software plugins, Color Efex Pro 4, Viveza 2, and Define 2 to enhance and bring out the colors and contrast. Final adjustments in lightroom before final export.
