Default Omg lazerz!!!

The annual Pittsburgh Arts Festival kicked off this weekend. Especially exciting was the grand re-opening of the Fountain at Point State Park, a city icon that has been turned off for renovation for four (!) years. To commemorate, the city set up a special beacon-like set of lights, illuminating the fountain from one of the prominent buildings downtown.

It was incredible--I couldn't possibly do it justice. I had trouble deciding on what to focus on, how to expose, etc. But I like some of these.

Last one still looks especially unnatural after I probably overdid some levels in LR. I kind of think it looks neat this way, but I'll probably mess with it some more. Any suggestions are welcome of course.

Love the first one. I moved out of Pittsburgh two weeks ago. Makes me want to go back!

Really neat shots, and very colorful. You really did a good job on capturing the city, the atmosphere, and the color under nighttime conditions.
