On a recent trip to northern Michigan, my wife and I visited Traverse City Commons. I’ve posted shots from this location before. The site is the location of the old Northern Michigan Asylum where they are converting the old buildings into retail, office and residential spaces. The weather the morning we arrived was cloudy, but breaks were beginning to appear in the clouds. As the sun peaked through it shone on the roof tops and really highlighted the towers/cupolas that are a key feature of the main building.

Processing was fairly limited. I had shot the image in landscape orientation, but that left too much sky in the image and I wanted to draw more focus to the structure itself. I cropped in from the right and then did some minor work on the contrast.

Feel free to leave comments or feedback below.
