Lafayette Part Entrance #6


One of my favorite spots, mostly because it is across the street from the Chocolate Bar. If you see a night shot here, I probably just had a Bailey's Brownie, which is the case here. Nikon D700, ISO 3200, 50mm f1.8, f/2.8 @ 1/4s handheld, auto wb. RAW file processed in Lightroom 2 to crop, adjust wb, add yellow split tone and pull back highlights in curves. There is no visible noise in the shadows.

I really like the atmosphere on this one. Great shot!

Thank you, David. Sue thinks the gate post on the left needs to be darkened because it pulls the eye out of the composition. I can see her point to some extent, but think it is only distracting only if the picture is large. Do you have an opinion?
