Clock On The Corner

Nikon D7000 18-135mm @ 90mm ISO 800 3-bkts f/16 Lr3, HEP1; PsCS5

I liked the look of this building which is located at the corner of Greenleaf and Philadelphia in Whittier, California, and then the clock had me.  For some reason street clocks seem to have a magnetic effect on me.  When I viewed the initial HDR image it did not have the impact I wanted, I then created a pencil drawing of the image and overpainted that with colors based upon the tonal  values of the original HDR, but more intense, then removed the pencil drawing layer and then blended the overpainted image with the original HDR image to achieve the final result.  My overall objective was to bring out more character in the clock and the  building.  (Thursday’s image this week will depict the building in a more natural state.)

  1. That’s pretty cool. I like those little details. To bad you don’t see them to often anymore.

  2. Thanks for the comment, Aaron. I think the interesting details are out there, you just have to be able to wade through all the surrounding mundane or schlocky stuff to notice them.
