Some more hard choices this month, as I captured some very nice photos. But this one I kept coming back to time and time again as the best of the month, so hopefully others will see in it what I see in it.

To me, the colors, reflections, and variety of building styles all mess together to form a simply stunning photograph. I really had to get the perfect timing with the sunrise and calmness during my park visit. When I saw this scene across the river, I was in awe.

Post Processing:
* Straighten
* Crop
* CHromatic Aberration
* Increase exposure, recovery, black point, and brightness
* Increase contrast and definition
* Increase saturation and vibrancy
* Bring up shadows slightly
* Export as TIFF
* Resize
* Sharpen Edges
* Save as JPEG

This could have been done in basic editing, since the shot out of camera was so nice.

Some other options for the month:
Science Hall
Dark Stormy Night
Curves of Contrast

Lovely scene, taking under low light will be more impressive imho.
