From its website: "Standing high on a bluff overlooking the mighty St. Lawrence River, Fairmont Le Château Frontenac is not merely a hotel located in the heart of Old Québec - it is the heart of Old Québec. Offering exquisite dining opportunities through renowned Executive Chef Jean Soulard, superior meeting facilities and a distinctive european charm, this stately hotel stands above historic Old Québec, designated a United Nations World Heritage Site."
PP: This is a HDR photo compiled in Photoshop from three exposures, each with two stops difference. In the end, I did not opt for the full tonal range that HDR made available because it became too fake for the feeling I wanted in a night scene.

Great night shot of Québec. The small tower topped with a flag on the right bring some balance to the whole.

We are lucky to have this gem right here in Canada. This is definitely a beautiful city and from this angle the night view is awesome. Interesting exposure settings. Details and colours look great. Thanks Josh.
