I took this photo back in Summer of 2010, not even sure if these signs are still there. I haven’t been back to Roanoke in the last 18 months. I hope its doing well and continue development of its downtown, as it was pretty lively back then. Anyone driving south HW581 through Roanoke downtown will see these signs, obviously they are much cooler after dark. You can’t see on the photo, but the coffee pot is animated, with coffee pouring into the cap.
btw, to get fine details of the neon signs I used Photomatix selective deghosting for different parts of this photo.

I love signs like that! Am not good at making pictures of them. Better try out you’re tutorial 🙂
Hi, thanks! Taking photos at night is hard, I always have trouble with it. Getting right exposure only for what I want to be exposed and at the same time not over exposing skies or other elements is pretty hard.
Wow, my English was very bad 😀 *I’m* *your*
And you’re so right, photographing at night is twice as hard. So you can be very proud of your work 🙂
Great night shot. For another HDR specialist I like see:
Thanks for visiting my blog.
That’s crazy. I love working in low light and at night but it’s so hard to really get what you want.
I find that skies get really messed up in the dark, at least for me.
I love neon, I’m a Pepper, and wish I could see the visual of the coffee pot! Thanks for the tutorial link.
