I've got a HDR method that works ok. It only works on daylight pictures though. (also best to have a picture with little to no specks/grain/noise/etc)

An example (if you care) http://img19.imageshack.us/img19/426...etheadress.png

Armani Hotel Dubai to open in Burj Khalifa on April 21‎

Armani Hotel Dubai to open in Burj Khalifa on April 21‎



Armani Hotel Dubai, the world’s first hotel developed by Armani Hotels & Resorts, in Burj Khalifa will open on April 21, 2010. An unprecedented luxury hospitality venture, Armani Hotel Dubai is the first hotel to be launched under the collaboration between Emaar Properties PJSC and Giorgio Armani S.p.A. An integral component of Burj Khalifa, every element of the Armani Hotel Dubai has been personally designed by global fashion legend, Giorgio Armani.

Mr Armani said: “My ambition for Armani Hotel Dubai – the first of a collection of Armani hotels, resorts and residences that will soon circle the world – is to celebrate comfort and style by providing the highest standards of design, hospitality and service.”

Mr Mohamed Alabbar, Chairman, Emaar Properties, said that the opening of Armani Hotel Dubai sets a new benchmark in luxury hospitality globally. “The hotel brings together two global competencies – the project management capabilities of Emaar and the superior aesthetics defined by Giorgio Armani. Armani Hotel Dubai will further also establish Burj Khalifa as one of the world’s unmatched luxury destinations.”

Armani Hotel Dubai will be home to eight unique dining experiences. The hotel will also include Armani/Privé, an upscale lounge, and the world’s first in-hotel Armani/SPA, which offers 12,000 square feet of wellness, where guests can enjoy treatment rooms, thermal suites, a fitness centre and an outdoor swimming pool. The hotel will be home to the Armani/Dolci chocolates store; an Armani/Fiori, a florist; and an Armani/Galleria showcasing select couture accessories.

Covering over an area of 269,000 sq ft, across the concourse, ground floor and levels 1 to 8 and levels 38 & 39 of Burj Khalifa, Armani Hotel Dubai has 160 rooms.

Armani Hotel Dubai’s opening will be followed by the launch of Armani Hotel Milano in Italy; Armani Resort in Marrakech, Morocco; and Armani Residences villas in Marassi, Egypt.

Why fake HDR? You cannot create information out of thin air.

A lot of you guys have super expensive equipment and a target that won't walk out of the frame. It's a shame not to invest a little time in software composition or the learning thereof, it makes all the difference once the basic conditions are met.

Hi all.

So this is the second press release stating April 21 as the opening date for the Armani hotel. Six days away ... cool.
It is looking like the hotel will open before any handovers for the Armani residences begin.
Looking forward to some updates from the hotel and podium zone C.
