    My friend got interested in digital photography (and SLRs) so I lend him my old D50.
    It also got me interested again and we decided to go to each Silicon Valley downtown once a week and take photos (drink coffee) too.

    Here's what i've got so far:

    Very cool series, Vlad. The first and fourth images are definitely my favorite! The photo of the "uncorked" is really nice too :)

    Nice pictures, I really like the look that gives the impression those cities aren't terribly crowded, and that there's still some nature around.

    Well I was there at 3pm, definitely not a "rush hour" situation.

    BTW, all those are HDRs, -2, 0, +2 exposures, handheld with nikon D90 and Sigma 10-20mm

    What program do you use to perform HDR's Vlad? I've been thinking about giving it a try! :)
    Someone said you can do it in CS5, but I haven't figured out how to do it.

    nice job. I like all, my favs are the 2nd & th. It looks so desolate w/o people.

    I think I have HDR plugin which works in Lightroom. I set it up long time ago and have not used it at all. Don't do HDR that much.

    Continuing with Willow Glen area.
    The downtown itself was so-so, kind of a low quality copy of Los Gatos.
    But the houses around it were amazing (architecture)

    Also an interesting question. Are there any interesting/historical building in a downtown near you? From photography perspective, that might me worth checking out.
