Well, sorry for the short absence (once again). Also, sorry for the sort of re-post, but I wanted to post this for a few reasons…
I liked it quite a bit, perhaps as much as the BW version though for different reasons. I actually saw this (color) version first and fell in love with it instantly. It just really captured the atmosphere of that night quite well. But, when I processed the BW version a bit later, I did like it quite a bit also, and over all I do feel like perhaps it got just a bit of an edge over this one… still I like them both quite a lot, and for completely different reasons. So, why not get some feedback? Any thoughts?
Secondly, I had wanted to post this because I got more than a few comments suggesting that they would have liked to see the last shot in color. I do love color night shots, as there’s something eerily wonderful about the distorted color combination from mixed lighting situations. Also, I haven’t posted anything in color in quite a while. So how about it? Let’s brighten up the place for just a bit. I do think the next few images are going to get right back to the BW theme though, so have to squeeze just a touch of color in!
If somehow you missed the two above links here’s the previous BW version of this shot: The Finger Points to the West
