Another scene from Old Town Wichita, minus the rain.


What The…?

Not sure whether this one is “blog worthy” as Ken Bello would say, but I found it interesting enough to slip in.  This was not Photoshopped with any filters or FX, just a  little work in Lightroom.  I’ll explain more if anyone is interested, otherwise we’ll just call it an abstract experiment.

Rainy Evening In Old Town

.

Not much beats neon lights reflecting on rainy pavement.   This is HDR, taken in  “Old Town” Wichita, where the Warren Theater anchors a series of shops and restaurants around the perimeter of the square.   Rain was still falling during this adventure.  My Nikon D700 has good weather sealing, but it was getting wet  enough that my little voice saying “you could be ruining your camera!” finally got the better of me and I gave up.    This HDR was generated and tonemapped in Photomatix Pro, then finished off with a little cropping, spotting, level tweaks, and noise reduction  in Lightroom.
