Shot of the Day #76

After a long arduous day of university (..yeh right!) a friend and I decided to photograph the new building on our campus (not pictured). After spending a good amount of time inside the new building we ventured outside to get the remaining ‘blue hour’ light. Which worked out nicely with this very colourful apartment building; a good find by my friend Mr Zhou – by the way, thanks for bringing your much sturdier tripod! So, once I had the raw file imported into Lightroom it was just a matter of selectively saturating the near spectrum of colours. Particularly I really wanted to bring out the rich blue of the sky, but I cheated a little bit with some split toning. This point-of-view or angle struggled against the ambient street lighting from below, so some clever cropping was employed to lessen the impact.
