This reflection

This shot has been taken in next to Mihai Viteazu square in Cluj-Napoca, Romania. We’re not having a very nice summer this year: low-ish temperatures and rain showers are quite common. That’s perfect for me as I don’t like the hot weather, and I love to shoot under the rain! People are rushing, trying to protect from the rain in funny ways… Cluj’s streets are sometimes not very straight and offer some puddles for me to use for this kind of photography, where I try to have a nice reflection of a buildings, of the people, etc. Let’s use the city’s perks in a creative way!

For this photo, on the processing part, nothing really fancy: standard Adobe Lightroom workflow, with a bit of dodge and burn on both the buildings: the real one, to make its lines pop, and the one in the reflection, in order to see it more clearly. I can’t say it was really clean water…
