Project 365 #5 – No Parking

Update: I played around some more with the colour to get closer to what I had in my mind.

The end of my work day was fast approaching and I hadn’t taken any pictures so I went for a walk. I’m not sure where I ended up but this sign really caught my eye. It almost looks like something from a zombie apocalypse; perhaps I have been playing too much ZombiU.

This is my most post-processed image yet for Project 365: the sign was above me so I corrected the perspective in Lightroom (the sign was a trapezoid before), then ‘incorrectly’ set the white balance to make the photo appear much colder.

I guess I’d rather that I could have taken it at eye level so there was no distortion to correct, but otherwise I’m really happy with this one.
