The Capital at Night, Austin

Amid the great music and thriving night scene, quietly stands the Capital. And unlike other situations that I've seen in other cities, the street is lined with lights leading the eye to the handsome structure.

I waited for a green light, then slowly crossed the street in the crosswalk. I had 15 seconds left on the warning timer, so I stopped for a moment to capture this image with an Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II and Olympus 17mm f1.8. Settings were ISO 1600, f/2.0, 1/40th, -1/3 exposure compensation in program mode. I then processed the RAW file in Capture One Pro 9, using the B&W conversion tool with a yellow filter and fine grain film effect.
