The Drake

The Drake Hotel on West Queen West in Toronto is a great old hotel building that has been totally restored. I took this in the early spring but never had a chance to post it here earlier.

Nice shot. is this an HDR photo? the sky looks pretty blue... definately a nice shot.
Iain Myrans: Hey Sean, I didn't see that you'd commented, sorry about that! Nope, not an HDR but I did do some highlight recovery. The blue looks a bit cyan because it was over exposed but the blues in my photos look a bit different from many others out there because I shoot on Olympus and in JPEG. The Olympus JPEG engine is considered to be the finest and with the best colour out of all JPEG engines out there. I have to say I love it whether that's true or not smile
I love that era TO architecture! cool shot too, the sky is striking,

the light of the sun seems great, I could see the shadow of the new budding tree
Well, nice shot all the same. The Olympus definately does a godo job on the sky. I use use Picasa3 to do a gradient filter post processing and get a simliar thing.

What do you use to process? I'm trying to move into Literoom.
