Weekly Photo Challenge: Illumination
This one is quit a bit more heavily post-processed than I normally go for. It almost looks HDR, but it’s all just Lightroom. Most of the editing involved darkening the image, as it was actually quite light outside at the time. I must admit I was surprised to discover that the shutter was 1/10. This was a handheld shot, and I must have nudged the dial from shutter priority to manual by accident, or I never would have attempted an exposure that long in my hand. I deepened the blues and reds – more to bring out the shadows and textures of the clouds than the color of them, and then used the local adjustment brush to create a false impression of light on the pavement and on the pole.
