Fountain in the Park

I shot this as a part of a bracketed set of 3, but wasn't happy with how the HDR merge was turning out. Since learning some basic manipulation using Adobe Lightroom and Camera RAW, I've shot strictly in RAW so I can have a little more control over post-processing. I didn't do a lot with this one. I let Lightroom figure out the color tone (Auto), and made minor tweaks to clarity and vibrance, and added a light vignette.

Not my best, but I really like the way the light hit the water in the fountain and the long, late afternoon shadows it cast.
