Here's a night photo of one of the two recently completed Farm Lane underpasses on the campus of Michigan State University. I got to work on the design of these rail bridges at work and see them come to life on campus which was pretty thrilling being an MSU grad. Go Green!!!

Hey! I was born in raised in Lansing (recently moved to NC to study photography), and I have to say that's one of the cooler architectural projects in the area that I've seen come to life. I worked at Goodrich's Shop-Rite, pretty close to this.
Also, I wish there were more quality photographers like you in the area, otherwise I may have been inclined to stay at LCC and study.
Great shot, btw....settings?

Thanks it was a pretty cool project to work on, especially having grown up in Lansing and being an MSU grad. Good luck on your photography studies…..maybe a new setting will inspire some creativity!

I think my camera settings were f/16 for 30 seconds at ISO 200. Exposure was tweaked quite a bit in lightroom. On top of adjusting the exposure up, I added a ton of recovery, some fill light and increased the black clipping. I also did some noise reduction in Lightroom and also cleaned up some flare and other spots in the photo. I really like being able to do that much work in Lightroom. I’m finding myself using photoshop less and less these past few years.

Thats funny you say that, I took a photography class last year at LCC, where the instructor introduced me to Lightroom and now I use it 95% of the time to edit my images. Its really a good workflow if you're into just optimizing a photograph (not manipulating it).
Keep up the good work.
