This was a pleasant surprise and a nice result from waiting to finish an image. The shot dates to the summer of 2013, nearly two years ago. I was stylistically in a major transition phase, in which I stopped processign most of my landscape and building photographs using HDR nad going for a more realistic approach.
I ran this image through the HDR software back then, and did not like the result. I knew I wanted to modify it but could not figure out how. And then I forgot about it until last night. I was randomly clicking on images from 2013 when I came across this project and saw the partially processed version. I liked some elements and now I knew how I would want to modify it.
