Toronto City Hall HDR

Continuing the photographic journey to see how HDR enhances the look of otherwise ordinary scenes, I went back to Toronto City Hall on a bright sunny day. I shot a series of 3 images, bracketed by 2 f stops. Photoshop's HDR Pro merged the three exposures to generate a surrealistic image that emphasized the highlights. To see what the photo looked like on a larger scale, I printed it at 18 by 12 at Pikto in Distillery District. The large image revealed gorgeous smooth tones on the windows, almost like water colors.
