|Shot this on a whim at about 3am. When I had the idea, it was pretty foggy and would've had a much nicer effect.. but by the time I got out, the fog was gone and I settled for this.
A cop came by and was running a license plate check on my vehicle parked about 50 feet away or so (guess he didn't notice me?) - asked him what was going on and he asked for ID and ran a background check on me and the whole bit... he didn't seem to buy that I was just out "taking pictures of the sign", but left after a few minutes.
Anyways, there was HEAVY lens flare no matter what angle I shot from. A semi-extreme amount of digital darkroom work (cloning, dodging, burning, hue/saturation, contrast, etc - definitely would not have looked similar to this without PS). Unfortunately, I think it has produced a very artificial look to this photo - but maybe only because I know what it originally looked like. Submitting it anyways, curious to see how it will do.
