"Urban Light" in front of LACMA. 202 vintage lampposts. This is a pretty popular place, but I lucked out with no one in the photograph because I shot right in the middle of the Super Bowl game when everyone was home in front of their TVs :)

Nikkor 14-24mm

Shot in Raw. White Balance, Saturation, Open in PS, Curves, USM, Save for Web.

This feels tilted, I don't know why. Nice colors and sharpness, though a bit uninteresting to me (especially the centered composition).

Gorgeous low light shot. Everything seems well exposed and none of the lights are blown out.

Nice find, a platoon of lights! Love how the vertical lines are echoed by the palm trees and the buildings. 8

I don't know if it's for real or my eyes playing tricks but this seems to be just a bit tilted.
