Photo of the Week: Trump Canyon
January is a good time to dig through one's archives, as I did for this shot. (Though it's from October of last year, so it's not exactly deep in the archives). I took this photo at Chicago and Wabash in the River North area. I was crossing the street and my eyes were immediately drawn to the Trump Tower in between these closer building. The Trump is only a couple of years old now, so I'm still surprised sometimes when I see it at various points-- it's still new to me. I stopped quickly and took this shot.
Photo details: Nikon D90 with 16-85mm, 1/80sec at f11 and ISO200. I processed the RAW file with DXO Optics to correct any lens distortion. I then straightened the perspective in Photoshop, cropped it, and finally converted to B&W (using a red filter in this case). It's very slightly sepia toned.
