I’ve driven past this business park sculpture for many years. Originally, I wanted to shoot the sculpture back lit to obtain a silhouette with maybe a starburst, but the composition didn’t float my boat. Sometimes what we think we’re going to do isn’t what works best, so I moved to the other side and composed the shot you see here.
Since we’re having such beautiful “summer” weather here (oy!), the flowers were looking very colorful. During Christmas, the structure is decorated with lights to look like two wreaths. I’ll have to remember to get a picture of that next Christmas.
The image is High Dynamic Range (HDR) created from three bracketed raw photos and combined in Photomatix with some additional processing in Nik Efex Color Pro. Even business parks can be beautiful if one only “sees”.
