Forbidden City, Beijing China

This is another exposure blended shot. The sky was very bright and it was throwing the building into shadows when I exposed for it . The building when correctly exposed made the sky completely blown out. I was lying down on the floor when I took this shot. How far do you go to get that shot you have in your mind? I personally find it helps to be a bit thick-skinned and be okay with making a bit of a fool of oneself. When I've held back I've come back with major regrets for not getting the shot I really wanted from once in a lifetime locations.
