The famous Basilica of the Sacred Heart in Brussels, Belgium. From Wikipedia: The church, on Koekelberg hill, is a landmark on the Brussels skyline. It is the largest building in Art Deco style in the world, at 89 m (292 ft) high and 164.5 m (540 ft) long (outside length).
Try to capture this gigantic turistic attraction in a fresh way is not a piece of cake, but I gave it a try taking advantage of a quite dynamic sky on a late afternoon. This is an HDR from three exposures (-3EV, -1EV, +1EV), each taken using the massive 10-stops B+W ND110 neutral density filter. The reason why I use the filter is two folds: 1) each exposure was recorded for several seconds, meaning that moving people and crowd tends to disappear from the shot, giving the impression to the only one present on the scene. And 2, the sky tends to be much more dynamic and interesting and the colours reacher.
Sorry for the long note, and I hope you enjoy this photo.
