Midnight Views in Windy City by 

I took this hdr shot to allow for a good even glow over the shot and still get the reflection of the street down below.
It also always reminds me of a drama, as after I went to bed after taking it, about 2 hours later my wife woke up in agony on the 38th floor in a Chicago apartment with a prolapsed disc and we had to ring 911!
Anyway, the 2 hours sleep was quite worth the effect..maybe!

Taken with 2 exposures – 1st with F3.5 aperture/5 secs shutter/500 iso
2nd with same aperture & iso with a 1 second shutter.

Thanks in advance for any views or comments.

    Very nice. And not overdone in post, as HDRs so often are.

    Good back story, too.
