Shanghai is an endless sea of high rises. Some of the worlds taller building stand there, rubbing shoulders with ramshackle old buildings and cookie-cutter garbage.
Shot as a high dynamic range image (HDR), during a rare sunset in Shanghai, the shot combines different exposures to show the unusual sky with lots of detail in the clubhouse and water.
The living compound at the Western end of Changning district is typical for Shanghai's wealthier people, with several high rises encircling playgrounds, indoor and outdoor pools, tennis courts, golf driving range and clubhouse.
The HDR technique allows us to show the scene like the human eye would perceive it, extending the dynamic range upwards and downwards by two stops each.
