This shot came about in a completely unexpected manner. I spent a part of the day yesterday walking around downtown San Antonio seeing if I could get a neat skyline shot from an angle that I had not taken a shot from before. Unfortunately, after several attempts scaling shorter parking garages and buildings, I finally found one that I thought would work, at the Crowne Plaza Hotel Riverwalk at 111 Pecan Street East. I took the elevator to the 9th floor, and climbed a flight of stairs to reach the top of the garage. Unfortunately, the view was not at all what I was hoping for, and, disappointed, hung my head as I walked back down the steps to the elevator. Just as I was about to reach for the door, I heard something in the stairwell and it caused me to look down the steps, and this scene is what awaited me. Completely unplanned, and what I think is a really incredible shot!
This shot was also the first that I have processed using Nik Color Efex Pro 4, which has even MORE filters than 3, and (in my opinion) improved on what was already the best photo enhancing product on the market. The fine folks over at Nik Software continue to churn out high quality products, and I cannot recommend them enough! They offer 30 day demos of all of their products, and I guarantee once you try it, you are going to want to buy it, their software really is that good!!
