Seaport Blvd., Redwood City, CA

I took this photo on my way cycling into work one morning. From a realism standpoint, it's kind of a failure. For some reason I decided to shoot directly toward the sun, which was bad enough, and I don't remember exactly why. It also doesn't help that I shot it with my Olympus XA, which has a maximum shutter speed of only 1/500th. And, I probably had the aperture set too wide.

Nonetheless, I tried to salvage it in post-processing, by readjusting the shadows, contrast and brightness. I think it amounts to an interesting abstract.
