Murfreesboro City Court

I have been wanting to take a more "artistic" photo of the Murfreesboro Square ever since I started photography. I have had several attempts in the past, but the more time passes since I took the photos, the more I look back and dislike them. Today's photo is nowhere close to what I have in mind, but it is (IMO) better than my previous attempts.

I did quite a bit of editing on the photo, but most of it had to do with small details (left buildings especially) and in spite of the many hours I edited it, it really looks very similar to the original photo. I don't have time to post the original version now, but I will come back to this entry and write more about the post processing.

One thing that I do regret, is that I didn't frame the photo around the road rather than the building. I think the reflection on the street is much more interesting than anything that is happening in the sky, especially since it was still raining. Perhaps if the sunset had "grown", I would have thought of different angles/framing, but as it was, everything happened within 5 minutes.

Anyway, I have to go for now, but I will come back and edit this post in a couple of days or so. There are a couple of really exciting things going on in our lives right now, and I don't think I will have much time to post new photos over the next couple of weeks, but you never know. I do have at least two other photos from yesterday's sunset that I will post later on this week.

Thanks for stopping by!

  • Hi Titus! I do love this photo... fyi, this is the Rutherford County Courthouse. The Murfreesboro City Court building is the new brick building next to the Linebaugh Library on Vine Street. Just thought you'd want to caption it correctly!

  • The way you have brought the sky into the wet road, gives this a beautiful touch. Nice shot.
