Revisiting the downtown Phoenix alleyway

The shot above was taken in downtown Phoenix and is just an alleyway I found whilst doing a little urban exploration.

I first posted a version of this back a few weeks ago. I processed it using a tilt-shift style to create a blurred or bokeh effect on the sides of the photo. A friend of mine who shall remain nameless (BRYAN!) said he wasn’t a fan of the blur and wanted to see the details instead.

I thought about it and went back for a second look. While I still like the blurred effect myself, I also really do love the details in this shot that the blurry areas covered up.

So for Bryan, and anyone else that is interested, here is a “revisit” to this shot with all the yummy details of a grungy alleyway.

It actually has a ton of character to it. I suggest clicking on the photo for a larger look.

Again, as the other one, this is a 7-bracket HDR photo.
