San Francisco, CA – Gotham City? (HDR)

From a visit to San Francisco I stayed at the Hilton in Union Square and always ask for a high floor. I awoke early on AM to grab and HDR through the window. Of course the window was not perfectly clean so I had to work with a few spots here and there…this made me decide to add a texture to balance them out as I thought this shot was cool enough to work with. Here is a different view of San Francisco for today! Kinda looks like Gotham City?? Throw a “Bat” sign in the sky and look out bad guys!

    Great job on the processing! Always hard to clean up those dirty hotel windows and I think this grudgey effect makes a really cool dark emotion kind of photograph – very as you say – Gotham!
