Triangular Building at 5600 North Ridge, Chicago, Illinois - Black & White Version (2014-07-25 12-50-39b)
The building is in the Edgewater neighborhood of Chicago, Illinois. It was built in 1918. The ground floor was formerly occupied by El Norte, an excellent Mexican restaurant which just disappeared one night. The second floor was rented out to musicians as practice space. It is currently empty.
Thw rtwork on the firat floor is no longer there. The space was subdividedand windows were installed but, the last time I was there, it was still empty.
The photo was taken with a Nikon Coolpix P&&)) camera. Editing was done with Luminar 3. First I straightened the image and added the RAW Develop filter to adjust the color balance, raise the contrast, shadows and clarity and lower the highlights and whites. Next I added the Accent-AI filter and 3 copies of the AI Sky Enhancer filter. I used the Tone filter to lower the SmartTone and added the Polarizing filter. Then I added the Details Enhancer and Remove Color Cast filters, then incresed the vibrance and warmth. Lastly I converted to black and white and fine-tuned the conversion.
