I recently took a tour of the Harpoon Brewery in Boston. It was the first time I'd been there since 2010 when they were still doing renovations, so I was excited to see how they'd improved the already impressive brewery. Our tour let out into a giant beer hall at the perfect time of day, just as the sun was setting behind the Boston skyline. My brother and I sat at the bar facing the view, and I was able to make this great HDR image of a back-lit glass of beer:
After glancing at my camera to make sure I got the shot, I look up and the backlight was gone - the sun had just crept behind the Prudential Center. I gave myself a little pat on the back and smugly finished my beer.
