Another from my photo walk from a couple nights ago. Everyone loves the spinning lights but they all want to get so close and I like a litte context. So you can see a number of photographers standing by the railing, waiting for the ferris wheel to start again. I like the buildings in the background, the heavy texture of the sidewalk, and the glow of the street lamps. For this photo I decided to try to make the entire scene a little dingy so I added an orange/brown cast to everything and then masked out the lights of the ferris wheel. I wanted them vibrant in contrast to the rest of the image like an oasis of happiness.
