Gritty View of Lacledes Landing

Gritty View of Lacledes Landing

St. Louis MO, Lacledes Landing

Photo Blog Entry

This is a gritty image of Lacledes Landing in down town St. Louis. Lacledes Landing is a fantastic spot for dinner and people watching. However if you are ever in town in January during an ice storm the place takes on a different look. I played around a bit shooting the steam coming up from vents in the street while I was walking the mostly deserted downtown. Mostly I was un happy with what I captured. The image here was worked over a bit in Photoshop Elements, the boy is napping so I had some free time. I gave it a grainy feel, like you would see using a high speed B&W film. To me it makes the scene more interesting. I made the entire image black and white with the exception of the tail lights of the car moving away from me in the image.

Great work!
