I made the most of a rare clear sky to take a shot of the futuristic Beijing Opera building, officially called the National Centre for the Performing Arts (or National Grand Theatre in Chinese).

Photo Tip: HDR images don’t always need to look strange, over-edited, or supernatural. Though you can create bizarre, stunningly colored scenes that look cool, implementing HDR in your photos is really about how well you control and manipulate light. Remember that rules of composition and photography basics still apply, and when well executed, some viewers will simply notice how detailed and amazing your photo looks.
