Crystal Ball

Kiarong mosque, the biggest one in the Sultanate of Brunei. The mouthful name: Jame'asr Hassanil Bolkiah Mosque -built in 1992 to commemorate the 25th anniversary His majesty the Sultan reign. It is locally known as the Kiarong mosque. The "crystal ball" is an ordinary street light on the mosque grounds.


Yesterday I purchased a Photomatix license and began experimenting with tonemapping, I'm still new to this processing and this is my first upload using it. I don't think I'll be using this often, it does seem to help a lot when the exposure is hopeless. Perhaps I will get better results when I start using bracketed images, this one used a single image.
