Downtown Chicago

HDR obtained from 9 pictures (-4 to +4) and processed with Nik HDR Efex Pro. I find the Nik software to produce more realistic looking images than Photomatix. I also like Nik's anti-ghosting feature, not really necessary for this picture.

I also used Nik's Complete Edition tonal contrast filter to add some more detail.

I then removed any noise with Nik Dfine 2.0 and finished the editing in PS CS5.

Thanks for viewing =)
