Stuck in Customs in Space

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 this shot! It came out wicked.

I used to say wicked a lot in grade school and I still like saying it. This may or may not make me lame, and I can't be objective about such things.

This is the airport in Bangkok, Thailand. I am not sure who the architect is, but it came out quite inspired. Taking photos of beautiful architecture is somewhat of a sport of mine. I want to try to honor the lines and the textures via a good composition and a good HDR treatment.

    nice shot, although it is tilted slightly to the left giving it a lopsided look.
    the coloring is great, althought it kinda blends together too well. and there is so much going on in this picture that it's hard to focus on one thing- sometimes more isnt better, but over all, i like it

    This is a really wicked shot! It's like the Fifth Element type of background!

    Amazing photo, fantastic architecture, you must be from MA. Wicked is still used here, but not as much; it hasn't run by my ears lately.

    I have looked and looked at this photo to determine what it is that hijacked my attention and made me utter "wow, fantastic, incredible ... what is this???". I think it's the patterns in the details, almost like a spider web, that draws the viewer toward the astonishing one-point vanishing perspective. This is a world-class shot!

    I'm not a fan of HDR but this is just right! Well shot and well processed,
