Buckingham Fountain at Twilight

This was my first time ever shooting Buckingham Fountain. I'm not sure why I had never done it before. During the warmer months, a light show is performed at the fountain. If you have not seen in and get the chance, I highly recommend it. Watching the show at dusk with the Chicago skyline in the background is a unique experience that no photo can do justice.


I tried shooting my first HDR pano to capture the city skyline behind the fountain. This was complicated by the changing colors of the fountain during the show. After a lot of time in photoshop, I think that the finished product represents the feeling that you would have at the show. I hope that you like it!
