Todd and I went up to the Observation Deck on the 17th floor of the Daniels and Fisher Tower in downtown Denver. It’s open only 1 day per year, during Doors Open Denver, which took place April 18 to 19, 2009.
The 17th-floor deck is right underneath the clock face. There’s another deck on the 20th floor, but I was scared to climb up the stairs (they were inside the building, but you could look down through them). In fact, I had trouble staying out on the deck very long. Two people can pass on it if they turn sideways. I kept having to go back inside.
Here’s the original of one picture from the deck, looking southwest toward the Pepsi Center (a.k.a. “The Can” or “The Pod”). Auraria campus is to the left and Elitch Gardens to the right.
Here’s the same picture with saturation reduced to -50 in Zoombrowser.
Here’s another version with saturation at +50 and sharpness turned all the way up.
I’ve been having fun playing around with Zoombrowser’s editing features. Now if I could learn to do more of this while taking the picture… I was disappointed by the haze in the original. The day was clear and bright and hot, but the original doesn’t show that.
