Philadelphia City Hall

This was one of the first images of City Hall, in the Center City section of Philadelphia that I capture during a field trip. The instructor asked us to experiment, to try to capture the details inside the arch without over exposing the outside of the building. I immediately thought of HDR. Three images, one exposed for the outside, one for just inside and one for the far back.

The HDR brought out the texture of the brick.

Lights on Broad Street

These are two of the images I captured of City Hall in the Center City section of Philadelphia taken during the night photography course Philadelphia After Dark field trip led by the instructor, David Hartz.

These are both HDR images with one image used as the main element for the light trails. I applied the perspective correction and a film filter to both HDR images.

I'm not sure which one I like better.; the one that was captured at blue hour while the sky was overcast or the one captured during the cross over to full night.

Which one do you prefer?
