This magnificent HDR skyline image was taken at Marina Bay in Singapore by photographer Matthew Brandalise of San Jose, California. Using 3 layered images with different exposure times, resulted in a dreamy and colorful night shot. “I was perched on the stairs next to Louis Vuitton store (previously featured here).
