Absolutely fabulous, is this an HDR, or just a brilliant exposure?

10 Dec 2009 1:41pm

@Curly: Thanks Curly! It's not HDR, I was just in the right place at the right time. The lights had just come on and there was still a fair amount of sunlight lighting it too. I desaturated the sky from the original pale blue for contrast.
