North Providence, Rhode Island
This large billiards hall and tavern sits in the center of the North Providence village of Centerdale right next to the Town Hall. I'd been meaning to take a photo of the interesting mural on the side of the building, but there was always too much traffic or too many cars parked in front. Today, though, I stopped at the post office, and on my way out I noticed the interesting backside. The wooden stairs and cinder block style walls made a more interesting setting than the well-maintained front.
Post processing started with a classic filter in Topaz B&W FX. I adjusted color sensitivity sliders, adaptive exposure, regions, contrast, boost black, boost white, and protect highlights. A levels adjustment was added in PSE.
