Hotel Astoria, St. Petersburg

Hotel Astoria – final image
Original Shot

In St. Petersburg, Russia  I found the Hotel Astoria very  interesting.  The bright red awnings caught my eye, and then I noticed the main streets on both sides leading to domed buildings topped with spires.  It took less than a minute to capture the scene on my camera, but several hours of post-processing to create the final image.
