Capitol at Evening Time

King Street on the Capitol Square, Madison, WI

I went out last evening. It wasn't the heat wave I thought it was. I froze.

This may be the first capitol photo I've taken I like. It is 4 exposures looking westward. The image came out so grainy that as much as I liked it as it was, I decided to use the Midnight Black action to try and 'ease' some of the grain. It ended up that I liked that version even more than the original. The only problem is it came out rather bluish, (although blue is present as I was photographing the shadow side, it was too strong). I then lowered the blues Saturation by 50% and came out with this.

Now, if history is any guide, since I like it, I'll get negative reviews. But that's ok, I can handle it.
