St. Louis’ Gateway Arch makes a great subject for photography with endless possibilities. This photo was taken from a viewing platform in East St. Louis, Illinois. The platform gives various heights for a good angle. However, there are power lines and other structures in the way so it is not possible to get a “clean” photo of the St. Louis skyline. This is a three shot HDR photo edited in Lightroom, Aurora HDR and Photoshop. Photoshop was used to remove the obstructions but I did not spend the time to do a clean edit and you can see some lines in the sky. These should be able to be cleaned up.

This is a “go back” place. That is, going back to a favorite location usually give you the opportunity improve your version of the scene.
