One of my favorite thing to shoot is skylines. Kansas City has a pretty cool one. I was standing by Union Station when I shot this image. What I like is that it has that Western Auto sign on it. I just love that sign. I miss Western Auto. (Advance Auto bought them out in 1998)
One thing about Kansas City is there is several different skylines to shoot. This is just one of them. In fact, there is several around the city that are not even downtown. (Plaza has a skyline as well for example) This is probably my favorite one though.
Using the Sigma 10-20mm (F/3.5)
I went out with the Sigma 10-20mm on the camera. I wanted to get some very wide looks and it is a great lens. It is probably the best “bang for buck” lens that I have. Considering that is was only $300 and I use it often for landscape photography, it was worth every penny.
I know at some point I will probably sell it off because it is only for APSC cameras (Cropped sensor). I can’t take it with me when I go full frame. The same is true of my favorite lens in my bag, the Sigma 18-35mm (F/1.8)
Editing them in Luminar
I actually was shooting around noon and there is the worst time in the day to actually be out shooting images. You just destroy everything with harsh light. I knew that any image I got would have to be bought back in editing. I love the editing process so that is not an issue for me.
I was able to change several things quickly using Luminar 4 and then in Lightroom CC. One of the first things I did was change out the skies to something better than a clear sky with the sun in the way.
