Bin Matar Building

Bin Matar Building, originally uploaded by heshaaam.

This is a panorama of the Bin-Matar building which was done using Hugin. The HDR was created using Qtpfsgui 1.9.2 using Mantiuk, Fattal, Reinhard, and Ashkiman operators blended with overalys in GIMP. Then to reduce the noise I use G’MIC toolbox through GIMP and did some smoothing.

The original building dates about a century ago, but Shk. May who supervised the renovation introduced some modern touches which made it a mixture of modern and traditional style. All of Shaikha May’s projects seem to find the right mixture of the two styles.

It might look a bit outlandish but who needs reality?!
