    Finally, I'm getting around to uploading the pics I've been taking with my awesome camera. I've been trying to get this picture for quite some time. I'm not 100% happy with it, but it's getting there. I also kinda like my framing on this picture.

    But I'm interested in what you all have to say about it.

    Thanks in advance.

    Is that at the entrance of a Metro Station?
    I find the tone a bit too much on the pink side, I must say.

    There are signs similar to this at the entrances to the Metro (except they have a ring at the top identifying the color of the Line), but this one was on the platform; the Takoma Station is above ground.

    Pink? Hmmm, I used a blue filter in PS, and then an amber one, so if that makes pink, that might explain it. I can't see the pink, but I need to look at it at work.

    Thanks for the comments.

    Thanks Mansi!

    LaFoto...you're right it is very pinky. I think I can fix that. I was trying to get it warmer, but not too, so I added some blue. I think if I take the blue out, it should be better.
