Continuing the visit to Paseo Pasadena in Pasadena, California here are two interpretations of the image I captured of the Cache shop:
I was trying to give some mystery and intrigue to the stairway and kept it dark during post processing. For some reason my mind imagined pirates coming down the stairway looking for the cache of treasure.
In this version I experimented with the fog effect available as one of the Nik Color Efex Pro filters, imagining Cache as a warm, inviting grog shop on the end of a foggy pier.
I would really like to know which image resonates more with you, so please leave a comment indicating your preference.
