HDR makes everything better
It’s really weird. It’s actually a normal practice to use when there’s a lot of backlighting. My camera, Sony DSC-HX5, has a “Backlight HDR” feature, but it doesn’t do the artistic stuff – just takes two photos and merges them together with software, automatically.
These are gorgeous!
The shot of the Green Line also unfortunately reminds me of how much of the Lake St L runs over abandoned lots and empty land/the economic depression of the West Side. It always surprises me whenever I take the Green Line west how fast it changes from densely build-up city center to empty lots.
Someone pointed out in another discussion the long distance between stations on the Green Line (and at the point he mentioned, Damen, shared with the Pink Line). There used to be a station at Damen. There also used to be a station at Kostner, halfway between Pulaski and Cicero.
