Birmingham Library demolition

These images were taken just a few seconds apart.

Because the scene was lit from the back and left, there were some harsh contrasts with a few areas being completely washed out.  The resolution to this was to work in two layers, one of which, the background, was given HDR treatment in Photoshop, whilst the top layer was full contrast.  I also made the top layer monochrome, so when this is superimposed at 50% opacity, it gives a low colour value effect which suits the subject matter.
