Photo of the Week: no entry to the golden city
My photo of the week is also featured on Gapers Block today. I like the way it looks on their home page so I saved a screen shot of this one:
This is the pedway bridge across Lower Randolph, connecting the Monroe Parking Garage (and Grant Park) to 300 East Randolph. I took this in the early evening after the bridge had been closed. Although I had seen pictures of this previously, I was never sure exactly where it was. I stumbled upon it quite randomly while walking through Grant Park one evening.
Photo Details: Nikon D90 with 16-85mm, 1/50sec at f5.3, ISO800. This would have been a good time to have a fast f1.4 or f1.8 lens with me, or even better, a tripod, but the 16-85mm did okay thanks to its VR. I applied a bit of noise reduction and sharpening to this in post production. It's also cropped slightly from the original.
