I took this one a few days ago but have been unsure how to process it. The essence of the shot, for me at least, are the shadows and the red lettering and small red lights, and I wasn't sure which post-processing option to go for. Anyway, to cut a long story short, this is something of a hybrid of techniques including using the Channel Mixer to convert to black and white - hence the black sky (masked to reveal the small red lights and lettering) - and the Curves tool, to marginally colourise the remainder of the image. In the end, I'm left wondering if some other choice might have been better, but I do think it's a reasonably striking image.
Anyway, I'm rather short of stuff to put up at the moment – other than one I'm really happy with, which will go up tomorrow – so it will have to do.
