I went to Federal Hill in Providence today for my photo, planning to do a bit of street photography along Atwells Avenue. I didn't get that far. I parked on one of the side streets and as I was headed towards the area of interest this gentleman struck up a conversation about the photo opportunities here. He's currently unemployed, and as you can see from this photo, he looks quite bored just sitting on the steps of his apartment. He readily consented to a photo, though, and did a great job of not looking at the camera.
Post processing started with a classic filter in Topaz B&W FX. I adjusted color sensitivity sliders, adaptive exposure, boost black, boost white, and contrast. A levels adjustment and a sepia photo filter were added in PSE.
