HDR Photography | Emerald City
HDR Photography | Emerald City – I took this shot one foggy morning in Chicago, Illinois. I liked the symmetry that the buildings provided but it looked a little blah overall because of the weather. I decided to give it a cinematic look using heavy split tones and Lightroom profiles. When I finished the edit and stood back I couldn’t help but notice that it looked a lot like the turquoise city that they visit in The Wizard of Oz. Hence the name: Emerald City!
