I took this shot the other day when leaving the Casino here in Cape Town. I realize that I might been in for some heavy critique with this image, such as perspective, POV etc, but to myself this image produced everything HDR in all aspects. There was good natural light coming in from the large window on the left, producing a good overall effect with regards to tonal range (light and shadow). The reason that the bottom of the stairs and escalators are cropped is that I am standing against a wall and could not retreat any further back and shot at 28mm (lowest focal). To all of you who might find the subject matter uninteresting, my apologies, but to myself it produced an image that brings all aspects of HDR out! Like I have said to some of you, photographic rules can and will be broken, we are all trying to produce a piece of art, which in a sense is so evident in HDR. I respect some of you will disagree with my thoughts, but hey, that's my perspective on the subject. Thanks for viewing.

I guess I'm the Poopy-head today... I put a few suggestions to perfect your shot that would all of the most intriguing aspects as well as provide symmetry in motion upward and eliminate the downward parts.

Nice work John, You seem to have captured (and processed) the whole dynamic range of the scene there!
