Waaaaay back in December of last year I went on a little photowalk across the city. Started in Tempe at sunset, ended up in downtown Phoenix. It was my first time really shooting the urban environment after dark, and I think I'd have a lot more fun now and know how to even snap the photos better.

I'll be moving down this way in a matter of days so I expect I'm going to invade and conquer this place known as "urban" Phoenix and give it the HDR stylizing that it quite frankly deserves.

This building is...well, I have no idea. It sits northwest of the US Airways Center where the Phoenix Suns play, but I never bothered to find out what the name of the place was going to be or if it's even completed yet. What I did love was all the different colors of light on each and every floor. It was like some kind of muted rainbow of colors and it was something I just had to capture.

Now of course, I would have expanded the three original brackets to at least six and shot it at better ISO and a higher F-stop, not to mention using something other than my silly kit lens. But I still love the building and am proud of how this turned out anyways.

    I love it!! The great thing about shooting something new is that it is so much fun to learn and then apply what we learned to do it better. I can't wait to see how you top this one.
