    Hello again everyone!

    So I've been eyeing this building for the past two weeks, and I really think it could make a great photo with the right conditions and processing thanks to that beautiful glass facade. I plan on giving it a go tomorrow morning so the sun is reflecting off the glass, and I thought I would ask you all for any suggestions you might have, or any composition ideas that you think would suite the building well. I've got a couple things in mind, but I'm up for any suggestions! I have thought about how it would look in HDR, but I have zero experience there, so I might wait on it for another day.

    Tell me what your thinking!

    P.S: I just swung by on my bike and took a cellphone photo, in case you were wondering why its so crappy ;)

    Any suggestions for someone who hasn't shot HDR before?

    Take several shots off a tripod at different exposures. Do not move the tripod or the camera.
    Merge them into an HDR using something like Photomatix, or CS5, or any HDR program really.
    Then tune it up.
