Photo Post 161: Pike Place Market Street Sign

Pike Place Sign Board

Still continuing my photos from Pike Place Market (Seattle,WA) visit. Actually still more photos there, I’m not really getting time to post and do more photography. Working life is awesome but busy too. 🙂

This photograph is unique because it covers good elements. First of all, the street sign board showing the intersecting street where Pike Place Market is, and the famous red Public Market clock and sign.  I really liked the way original photo came out. The only problem was the alignment of the sign board pole. While I was going to post the photo after normal post processing correction, I suddenly thought about ‘transform’ feature of photoshop.

I quickly exported the photograph from Lightroom to Photoshop, converted it into a smart object and started playing with ‘perspective’ and ‘skew’ feature of transform. Bingo ! It really gave me an interesting and more satisfying look. Even though it’s not perfect effect, I’m quite happy with the final outcome. By observing more, you can figure out that the shapes look different.

I increased sharpness using Photoshop smart sharpen because photograph covers elements with nice edges like building (which intersects with plain sky), green signs (which partly intersects with plain sky), the red board (which kind of have 3d perspective) and also edges of the sign board pole.
