Walking on the Greenbelt along the river in Boise, Idaho, always presents interesting photo ops. This was taken when they were putting together the framework for a new building at Boise State University.

I wanted the photo to have a metallic look so I converted to monochrome in Lightroom and used the HSL sliders to get the tones I wanted. I then used the Topaz Detail 3 Feature Enhancement filter. The sky was a pure white overcast. In CS5, I cut out the sky and then put a radial gradient in the background, starting from where I estimated the torch would be.

Technical Info: Photo was taken with a Nikon D700 camera and a Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8 lens with a 2x tele-converter. Exposure was 1/1500 sec at f/6.3 at ISO 800.
