Week 37 - State Street Beginnings

Throughout the course of this past week I tried to take as many shots with light posts in as possible. Light posts are interesting as they are not normally looked at by people, but provide an artistic touch to so many street scenes. That was the case here, where this row of light posts interacts with the surrounding architecture perfectly to pull everything together.


Needed the help of HDR to create the scene you see here. With Nik HDR Efex Pro, I combined three exposures (shot handheld) and then used Pixelmator to correct the lens distortion. After that, some small tweaks in Aperture and we now have a beautiful rendition of the west most end of State Street.
