    While driving around Alaska late at night (there was still plenty of light outside) I saw this while driving across an overpass. This was in Nikiski which is a small town with a big presence from oil companies, so I'm assuming that this is some type of oil refinery or chemicals plant, but I'm really not sure. Anyway, I thought this would make a cool shot, so I pulled out the tripod and took 3 exposures and applied my hybrid-HDR technique (see tutorial referenced above). I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out!

    Canon EOS 60D
    Canon EF-S 15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM
    ISO 100
    3 shot Hybrid HDR (see tutorial referenced above)
