The Bean – Black & White

I’m amazed how often people click on my blog because they are searching for information on Chicago’s “The Bean” (its real name is Cloud Gate).  I’ve posted this image before in color but honestly have never been happy with the look of the sky.  Here’s the picture in black and white.  I think I’m finally happy with the sky and background.

  1. Thanks Ryan Roush. I get asked that a lot. I was there around 0540 therefore no body was there. I did not use any filter. It’s actually a 7 exposure HDR that was processed initially with HDR Efex Pro 2, converted to B&W in Silver Efex Pro and then further processing in Lightroom 4.
