    I came upon the Vaillancourt Fountain in San Fracisco, CA, one day and the water had all been emptied out. Most of the shots that I see of the fountain get the overall shape from the outside. I took this as an opportunity to climb into the fountain to get a unique vantage point of this twisted mess of a concrete landmark.

    Thanks! Walking around inside really brought the texture to my attention. I had debated whether or not to remove the graffiti tag on the right, but after reading a little about the history of the fountain, I decided that it was totally appropriate... Thanks again!

    HDR, right? There is some slight haloing around the concrete and buildings.

    It just blows my mind how that really is 3 images. The texture is amazing. Does the fact that it is 3 images combined make the texture that sharp?

    Nope... in fact, most HDR's tend not to be too sharp coming right out of processing and require other processing/cleanup as well.
