So, I was dabbling around tonight at Genos, and it was raining. The neon lights were reflecting like crazy in the street, and I thought to myself, hey this might make a great black and white shot. And so you have it!

Opened in Adobe Lightroom. Adjusted exposure/contrast/recovery/saturation/converted to grayscale.

Brought into PS:CS, Burned in the corners, and burned in a car that was there. I cloned out a few small distracting bright signs, they were tiny.

Saved, resized, cropped.

Would have worked well in neon as wel. Like the way the light shines on the pavement and leads your eye up the sidewalk. Very nice angle.
