This is an HDR attempt of Westminster Palace (aka Parliament).

Having only a camera in hand I was very limited where I could set up for a multiple exposure shot. The bridge rail and a now destroyed kneaded eraser was the best I could do. Despite a few really nice images of Parliament glowing in the morning sun (which a few friends told me to submit), I keep coming back to this one as it really conveys the feeling of the morning.

HDR in CS4.
Used healing brush to remove a yellow pipe standing in the water.
Contrast, Clarity and Vibrance boast in LR3 beta.
Sharpen and Crop.

There's low-key, and then there's no-key... This photo is the latter, not the former. I might have waited until 7:15 or 7:20 to take the shot. Doing so would give the same basic premise, it doesn't screw with your theme of the shot, and you get just a tiny bit more light shed on the scene.
