We finally had a nice spring day in Ann Arbor this past weekend and I decided to take the opportunity to wander around town with my camera. I took several shots, most of them using my 7-14mm wide angle lens. This particular shot shows the Ann Arbor Hands On Museum from what used to be the front of the building. The museum opened in 1982 in what was originally a fire station.
This processing on this image was fairly minimal. I converted the image to black & white in Photoshop CS4 and used some transformation tools to correct some perspective distortions. I used a couple curves layers to increase the contrast in the image.
Comments and feedback welcome.
