About the Image(s)

Specs: 2 sec, at f11 and ISO 100. Sony camera with 21 mm prime lens.

Thoughts - shot in the evening of 2021 Thanksgiving evening (around 6 PM) in downtown Houston. It is a very special year for the holiday. With a fast train passing by, here we are in the holiday season again. Noticed streets with holiday decorations, but hardly see many people.

The linear patterns of the lights and the reflections make a magical image.   Posted: 01/05/2022 19:42:42

I love the composition of this image. The eye is drawn into the image nicely towards the lower-right sweet spot. The colors add to the drama of the image, too.

I did find the image a bit noisy, which is surprising given the low ISO. I took the image into Topaz Denoise AI to subtly remove the noise, then into Affinity Photo to remove some distractions (mainly the horizontal lines crossing the waterway). Thoughts?   Posted: 01/17/2022 11:41:09

Wonderful colors and composition. My eye is definitely pulled through the image. Love the reflections in the water, too.   Posted: 01/17/2022 11:50:20
