This is one of those photographs that I took and didn't think much about it. A few months later, something about it caught my eye and got me to thinking it was worth posting. I was initially trying to over expose the stop light from the side, which obviously didn't happen here. What I like about this shot is the bronze look that the overhead street light brought out on the traffic light. Note: This is actually an update of the original photo that was initially posted back in 2005. While reprocessing all of my photos (and having a better computer/monitor) for the new gallery, I immediately saw all kinds of noise in the black sky caused by my old camera. I'm not sure if it was ever really noticeable in the previous gallery, however, I did make a layer mask and removed all the excess noise, including the the couple of lens flares caused by the light. No other processing, including levels adjustment were done to this.
This is such an interesting shot, I adore the angle!
