For this week’s Sally D’s photography challenge, it’s the challenger’s choice. So, here’s a recent shot I took on my smart phone on a rainy night in Chicago when I had to run out on a quick errand. As I turned the corner on Michigan Avenue, the street was awash with color, reflected off the buildings, the lights, and the traffic. As you can see in the photo, the shot highlights the Japanese apparel store Uniqlo–which is opening all over America. Its distinctive storefront with multicolored lights caught my eye. I liked how the lights were reflected on the pavement below.
A Technical Note: I brought the image, which was shot with my Samsung Galaxy S5 phone camera, into Photoshop. After tweaking the exposure and contrast, I added a Nik HDR filter to highlight the storm clouds and the “rainbow” reflected on the pavement.
What do you think of the result? Have you shopped at a Uniqlo store yet near you?
Wishing you all an inspiring week!
