I was especially happy that this came out so well because I had to take it without a tripod. The windows are a bit blown out (despite the fact that it was dusk), but the only way to prevent that would have been to go back later, and I didn't have time for that.

Postprocessing only some level adjustment, and very slightly increased the blue saturation.

That's an intense band of color; good exposure given all the glare from the windows.

I'd like it better if the top of the dome weren't so dark and the windows weren't so bright.

Stunning dome, the windows are a little blown out (I'm sure you noticed) which is a little distracting but otherwise this is a very nice image. 7.

i love what you've attempted here, and really imagine that it is not the best of shooting conditions. all the same, though, i'd really like to see more of the detail in the upper dome. i don't know if it's possible or not, but the darkness does detract, at least for me. good luck with the challenge!

Quite a place! The exposure on this one was hard - the window light is blown out and you also lost important details in the dome. I think I might have tried to lock exposure on the inside of the dome and suffered with the windows...
