This is a strange step for me. I'm trying something new in terms of HDR photography. And, get this, I /cropped/ this photograph. I don't crop. I can't crop. But I did. I really can't say I like this photo that much, but I felt it was good enough for Flickr.
This was taken around midnight in Madison, and it seemed to much less real (yes, I'm aware this is an abstract HDR already) when I made it any brighter. Let me know whether you think I should increase the lightness anyway.
