August 23, 2007 HDR Thriller (pyramid)

The Ancient and the Modern, originally uploaded by graspnext.

After yesterday's rather remarkable pic, I thought I'd use "pyramid" as a search word and see what came up. I present two today. The one above I find has remarkable composition and theme with the modern high-density Cairo in the foreground set against the ancient pyramids in the background. Not only does it say a lot about the endurance of the pyramids, but it's just cool to think about all the history and span of time in between. Kinda raises the question...This is progress? MUST SEE IT IN LARGE ON BLACK.

And below is the glass pyramid entrance to the Louvre. Pretty stunning technical HDR work. IT, TOO, NEEDS TO BE SEEN IN LARGE ON BLACK to see remarkable detail in the stonework on the building among other things.
