The Bean Part Deux

The Bean Part DeuxHere’s another take on chicago’s “bean” statue. I took this one from slightly further away and de-saturated the color a bit. I also used a few stacked neutral density filters to extend the shutter. That’s photo-nerd speak for trying to get the people milling around to magically disappear. And, for the most part, the scene is fairly clean. I took this shot rather late at night, but I don’t think there is ever any time you can get a shot without somebody being there; at least not at a reasonable time anyway.
