San Francisco, CA – City Hall (HDR)

SF City Hall Interior HDR  Talke
While in SF I wanted to grab a photo exterior photos of the City Hall. While waiting for the sun to set I took a stroll inside to check out its interior. Wow! Very nice for HDR’ing! They were prepping for a big party and had it all lit up and set for a wonderful evening for a lucky group of people!

Munich, Germany – Theatine Church (HDR)

Munich Church_talke
From the lovely city of Munich, Germany…if you walk around Marienplatz you can find some great architecture. A few churches, shopping, the Rathaus and much more! Hop off the U-Bahn and walk about 1/4 mile and you come across Theatine Church. Hard not to find it due to its yellowish exterior color. The outside is tough to photograph…tight quarters. Inside is the best option! Not many church interiors look bad in HDR. Enjoy your Thursday!

Las Vegas, Nevada – Luxor Hotel (HDR)

From my recent trip to Vegas…this shot was on my list. I arrived near sunset and thought the light rays might be shooting along with the sunset behind the hotel….got lucky! One cool design for a hotel. Never stayed there…not sure how the room are. If the Nile is your style…this is your kinda place! =)

I was trying to find some cool and different spots in Vegas to HDR after taking this shot. I had an idea for the MGM hotel. Woke up early on AM ant 4:45 AM and walked over…hoping that things would have quieted down. Geez!! Even at 4:45 AM…people were partying and gambling! I talked to security and my idea was shot down without proper approval. I tried! If anyone has any contacts at MGM…please let me know. If not, I will try to call in advance and get the shot set up! Hopefully one day! We can all dream! Have fun!
