While I minimize the use of post processing, or 'Photoshopping" for my shots, sometimes mother nature just does not cooperate. The before shot above makes for a rather dull waterfront view with the cloudy, dour weather. For the after image, I used Nikon's CaptureNX software to brighten the mood and vitality of the shot, giving the same image an appearance of a summer sunset on the York River, as  viewed from historic Yorktown, VA.



This shot was taken in an abandoned industrial building in a part of Hampton, Virginia that is undergoing a revitalization. The overhead door appears to be no match for the natural sunlight outside, with a midday intensity that forces its way through a barrier that has withstood neglect, gunfire, and who knows what else on the streets just beyond.
