This is the Cathedral of Immaculate Conception situated in the heart of the old town of Chanthaburi.

This shot was taken just before sunrise that I needed some clouds for keeping sunlight not so bright but it didn't. So it was difficult to control dynamic range in this single shot and I finally I could. I am not familiar with HDR technique and I use a piece of paper to control the sky brightness istead of ND grad filter during this long exposure shot.

This church is located on the left side of the Chanthaburi River, it took 275 years to complete this beautiful catholic church. It was renovated and rebuilt five times between 1711 to the present. The architecture is in Gothic style decorated by stained glass and murals of Christian Gods. Moreover, there is beautiful statue of Virgin Mary inlaid with gem inside the church and it's worth visiting.
