Vancouver Washington - City Hall

Vancouver Washington - City Hall My brother Jon got married in Vancouver Washington over the new year and I have been so busy lately I haven't had a chance to work on some of the photo's I took while Jenn and I were at the wedding. We stayed at the Hilton just down the street so it was easy to grab my camera and run out and snap a few photo's around downtown Vancouver. As you can see it was a beautiful blue hour which always makes me happy.

How this shot was made, Canon 5d mkII, Canon 16-35mm f2.8 II F16, ISO 100, 26mm, 20sec

Exposure Blending. Using Merge to 32-bit HDR Plugin plus the -1 exposure for the sky I blended the exposures until they were balanced together. Then using NIK Color Efex pro 4, and Define I enhanced the colors and contrast. Added small vignette in Lightroom before export.
