Cloud Gate (The Bean) seen in the foreground left with buildings along Michigan Avenue: the Smurfit-Stone building (diamond rooftop), Trump Tower (to the right of Smurfit-Stone with the spire). The Chicago Cultural Center is front and center, dwarfed by those buildings that surround it. Barely visible in the upper right-hand corner is the Prudential Building. Photo taken September 13, 2009.

Oh I love this HDR work. I've now got a copy of Photomatix any hints and tips on how to get the best from it? Do you use multiple images (bracketed) or make copies of one image in various exposures/levels?

A wonderful HDR that brings justice to this attraction. Nicely done. I have been to Chicago once a few years ago, but this was prior to my DSLR days. I think I'm inspired to revisit and have a photo shoot with The Bean!
