Reflection of Last Light

The original was a reflection of light off a shiny surface but I did not save the original to allow for a comparison of creation and original out of camera image.

I make use of a program called Flaming Pear which has several effects one of which I particularly like; namely, one titled flood which not only can create a flooded feel but also creates a reflection where none might have existed previously.

two lights in the railroad underpass was the starting point for this image... I ended up being more interested in the resulting shape of the two lights than the color and perhaps I should have carried on to a b&w format.

created from light in Union Station which I rotated to horizontal with a mystical feel coming through, for me, in the resulting image.

I found the conversion from the simple last light of April 21, 2020 to a b&w image created an ominous feel in my mind as of a snake like creature winding in and out of the shadows.
