High Dynamic Range image of Seattle Skyline at dusk

Heres a very unrealistic, hyper-processed image of Seattle at night. This is a composite image made up of 3 different exposures that, in turn, were made 3 stops apart from each other. One image is 3 stops overexposed, one image is exposed correctly and the last image is 3 stops overexposed. This in turn allows special software to take these three images and combine them into one image that attempt...s to show the range of differing exposures in one shot. Often this technique results in weird, otherworldly looking images and its very easy to tell when a photographer has gone "too far" with this technique. Myself, while I like playing with it and I enjoy the effects it creates, wouldn't consider this to be a "serious" photograph. I hope you enjoy it though!
