A plaza or town square is like the heart of a city, and no place is that more true than in Brussels, Belgium. Their town square is called Grand Place, and Grand is right! It's an incredible display of wealth, architecture, and pure photographic awesomeness. I could literally spend hours just hanging out there, as many folks seem to do (in other words, good luck getting a shot of it devoid of people).
I caught this HDR image there while visiting Brussels earlier this year. Grand Place was the first spot I wanted to visit, and fortunately my hotel was a 5 minute walk away. I high-tailed it there as soon as I checked-in! Despite my desire to fire off lots of HDR brackets, it's almost as much fun standing around and people-watching there. Almost. :-)
