General location: Australia, South-East Queensland

The Setup:

This was from the Adelaide Street entrance to the arcade. It's very bright, colourful (in a restrained fashion) and boutiquey.

The camera & lens:

@ 77/20mm
Exposure: 1/15" @ f/28/10, ISO 160

Post processing:

Lightroom - The image was a bit dull, so I tried to get some pop. Curves - highlights +100, lights +50, darks +20, shadows -60. This got the pop I wanted, but then the lights on the ceiling were blown out, so recovery up to 70 to mitigate that.

The wash-up:

The angle isn't quite square on.
