A new edit of this image, which I now much prefer, is available here. Please take a look.
I confess, I’m pressed for time and pulled this from my archives because it was ready to go. I’ve already put another shot of this diner up on the blog. I like this one almost as much, but the sign for the store that went out of business makes that one better for me. I do not remember how I processed this, except that I added some detail inTopaz Detail. I also had to mask out some moving cars on the highway in the background.
This shot features 2 conflicting signs on the diner itself: the one on tap optimistically announces it is under new management, while the other in the window provides a phone number should you want to rent or lease the property.
