This is a shot of the marquee on the Michigan Theater in Ann Arbor, Michigan. The theater has undergone a restoration which took several years to complete. I believe they have at least one more phase to go. Part of the restoration was to install a ‘new’ sign which replicated the sign which was originally installed for the theater. In the 50’s the sign was taken down and a ‘modern’ marquee was installed. With the ‘new’ sign, the theater looks like it did when it was built. More information on the Michigan Theater can be found here.
This shot has had minimal processing done to it, most of which occurred in Lightroom 2.0. I’ve also created a more ‘artistic’ version of this shot through the use of some Photoshop filters shown below.
Comments and feedback welcome.
