The Veins of Bangkok

If you want to see how I made this (and how you can too!), visit my HDR Tutorial. I hope it gives you some new tricks!


I love getting up to the highest point in cities to get a nice perspective. I'm afraid I have forgotten the name of this place in Bangkok, but it's the tallest building there. I have a good memory; it just doesn't last very long.


The top of many tall buildings have bars or restaurants where you can take photos. No one ever really seems to mind. One BIG problem though is the lights inside the bar. They bounce off the windows and create an awful reflection. I usually contact someone that works there and give them a tip to turn off all the lights for 5 minutes while I take the photo. I am sure to set everything up first, so I can get to snapping... especially since as soon as the lights go off, a mild amount of panic ensues from the patrons.
