bah. To night at least I have no direct plans, a number of "if X person comes to town" potential, but nothing set. So! I'll be on Stat tonight with camera for the first time since last year - I think I have one shot of state at night? (wow, and it's nearly two years old). or not. Apparently I haven't been to state at night for two years. Well, this should be nifty.
Barring photo-wandering, I'll hunker down at Michaelangelo's for coffee and so I can.. sigh.. do some work remotely. Stupid large projects. I supposed getting a look sooner is better than later what with a truncated work week next week. This would be so much easier to ignore if I hated my job or had no sense of ownership over my product.
the point of all this is that I'm going to be foot-loose and fancy-free this evening, mostly, while lady_fox parties with the to-be bride tonight and you should come out. Evening phlogging is the way to go.
Getting this shot was annoying. All the lights in the stacks are motion sensitive. I had to lie down in the adjacent aisle and slowly scoot my camera into the one next to it. The sensors only respond to "fast" movement so I was able to get it in the dark aisle without triggering the light. Thus, the light and dark pieces to the cross.
I think i added a blue channel monochrome layer in Aperture. I think I added a few percentage points of green to it and tinted the mid-tones green to lighten it without affecting the shadows and highlights. I'm not 100% sure, actually. I remember the edits for this one because I was thinking I'd post that. But decided to turn it into a Before/After set.
Apparently it's easier to remember the "difficult" post-processing photo steps. THIS one was too EASY for me!
