NY city intersection.
So many people have asked about this photo, I thought I should answer some of the questions.
No, its not done in photoshop and the blue is not added. Basically I took the photo and dropped all of the colors to black and white and then pulled back blue, I also brought back a hint of yellow to highlight the yellow cab. Ironically even the blue is lower than recorded by the camera, there is just so much blue neon lighting on this street that it just punches up like that compared to the other colors which have been dropped.
I took the picture from the middle of the intersection when the light was red, handheld... I had to watch for the light to change. I walked out 3 times and got about 8 or 9 shots in total, this one I liked the best... I actually wanted the two cars leaving and entering the scene, I felt it represented what I felt as I stood there...
Thank you so much for all of the positive feedback.

Such a simple trick to bring out the blue, yet it has such a big effect when one looks at this photo. It's a well taken shot and I very much love the accent of the blue. Well done, and a well deserved DD, congratulations for that. :)

Sincerely
