I was leaving my office when I saw this scene and had to stop to get the shot. The problem? Well there’s not really parking at this intersection and to get the shot I basically had to pull the car over as close to the curb as I could, jump out with my tripod and camera and start snapping. The problem with this was that there were a lot of cars and I temporarily caused some minor gridlock as cars started to make the turn onto the road I was on, but were blocked from going any farther. Either way, the shot was well worth the effort.
About this shot
Composed of 5 RAW bracketed images and processed in 1) Photomatix, 2) Lightroom, and 3) Photoshop. Much of the work in this image was in photoshop where I had to layer several of the original images and mask out some of what photomatix created. I also adjusted the sharpness and saturation of the fall colors on the trees and the native grasses in the center.
