Picture of the Day: August 20, 2013

I'll be spending part of my time in Brockport, NY as a Visiting Assistant Professor of Meteorology for the next few months, so you'll be seeing content from around the Brockport/Rochester area as well as from the Freeville/Ithaca area.  The photo above shows the Main Street drawbridge over the Erie Canal looking toward the east (roughly).  The photo was taken near sunset; you can see the moon rising in the upper right.

I'm experimenting with photo editing.  Here's the same shot, but with some adjustments to accentuate the greens, blues, and reds in the photo above; notice how, for example, the yellow lights become white:

And the photo below shows an adjustment to the "temperature" setting so that only the "pure" greens, blues, and reds are accentuated.  The "Brockport" sign, flags, and red brick building stand out.  Leave a comment: which one do you prefer?
