Happy Feb 29th! What do we call it, Leapyear Day? Leapday? What?
I took this on the way home from work tonight. I ended up shooting it handheld because I was too tired and cold to consider pulling the tripod out of the trunk and setting it up.
This HDR image was made from five exposures (+2 through -2 in one stop increments). The tonemapping was done in Photomatix, then it was on to Lightroom 4 for some color adjustment, GND and a bit of sharpening. The last step was adding the border with CS5.
My complete collection of HDR photos can be found here.

=> For those interested in learning about HDR, Trey Ratcliff (Flickr handle: Stuck in Customs) is widely considered an HDR guru/expert/pioneer. His website has a few free basic instructional videos on how to create HDR images as well as info on how to learn more advanced techniques. Highly, highly recommend!
