This is pretty amazing:

And here I was thinking that budgets for on-location filming were going up. After all, my boss and I went to watch Kiefer Sutherland when he was filming Season 7 of 24, across the street from us and right in front of the Capitol Building. I thought technology of this caliber was still a few years off, as I remember some pretty bad compositing effects of this nature from Season 2 of Heroes (when Noah Bennett and The Haitian go to Odessa, Ukraine). I guess I was wrong.
