How do you realistically depict a large interior space with overwhelmingly bright views to the outside through a wall of windows? If you expose for the outside, the interior goes very dark; if you expose for the interior, the view out the windows becomes totally burned out. The answer is that you use HDR (high-dynamic-range) techniques, involving multiple exposures. Also, to capture the broad sweep of the space, you need to stitch together multiple angles. To capture this space required some twelve individual exposures. The result is that the viewer comes away with a good understanding of the space. The image tells the story.
