I spotted this during a recent but rare trip back to the city of Baltimore, MD
I was walking around looking for photo ops after photographing some Row Homes in South Baltimore for better resolution since I may be getting a chance to sell 116 copies to an agency that contacted me on a popular but lower resolution version.
So, I drove a short distance further to Federal Hill which has one of the best views and perspectives of Downtown Baltimore and it's "Inner Harbor". I think I took some very good shots but most were for 2D.
Close by Federal Hill is a somewhat elite newer area fondly known as, "Concrete Canyon" which also borders the water. One section of condos had this pumpkin sitting midway up a stairway. I thought it was very simplistic but the pumpkin was a perfect shape and size. I took a quick cha cha.
I spent a good deal of the the day experimenting
with filters, textures, oil painting effects, vignettes, and even cloning for a different look for the composition. Although this version has some digital oil painting effect that is probably not noticeable unless viewed at full resolution, I thought it viewed better than the other experiments.
I did come up with one 2D version however that incorporated effects and I also added a black and white cat from another image I took last year in another part of the state. If anyone is interested in that 2D version, here is a link...
