Four Up in San Francisco

Four Up - San Francisco - 2013

I wrote earlier this week about the beautiful light that Doug Kaye and I found recently in this “street” near the Transamerica Pyramid in San Francisco’s Financial District.

This is another image shot with my new Fujifilm X-E2 that took advantage of that magical light. Originally, I thought I’d process this image in color – as that ketchup bottle just pops in red – but, instead, I converted it to monochrome in Photoshop CC using Topaz Simplify 4 and then applying a touch of Photoshop’s Oil Paint filter.

I really love the tonality of this image – and the subtle textures that the oil paint added to the glow of the metal.
