I knew right of the gate that this image was going to be tough. Dark/night scenes with a bright light that require long exposures make for difficult HDR processing. This is primarily due to the light source blowing out a lot of the scene. Looking at the brackets, that was exactly what I was going to have to deal with.
After some work in Photomatix and Photo tools, I was left with the my final image. But it wasn't exactly the look I was wanted to achieve. Then I realized I am still in my trial days of Silver Efex Pro, a black and white conversion program that I'm really liking. Ran it through the paces and really liked the results.
Hope everyone has a great week!
