The Marketplace in downtown Springfield, Ohio is a dramatic, historical building. The often-photographed clock tower is a well-known landmark.
This photograph was made from the balcony of a nearby hotel. Post-processing was tricky as there are strong light and dark areas. The initial pass was through Aurora HDR which brightened the colors and provided greater contrast. The next pass was through Alien Skin’s Exposure X3 which handled the black and white conversion. Final touchup consisted of some dodging and burning in Photoshop CC.
Sunsets in Florida in Florida can be spectacular, but many of them show the sun going down over the Gulf of Mexico or one of the state’s many lakes or ponds. I’ve recently been photographing a grove of trees not far from our condo.
The mid-winter sun sets at a slight angle to the main alignment of the trees, offering opportunities for shadows. Please follow the jump for technical details and ordering information if you want a copy.
