Many thanks, folks! It was a fun, short ride (through the pedestrian tunnel on a people-mover/conveyor belt.) The super-wide-angle lens came in very handy! #10003138

I couldn't resist playing around with another image from this LED-studded pedestrian tunnel. I cloned 2/3 of the original image and flipped the copy,
then rotated the results 90 degrees to create an overhead, off-center arched tunnel look. I also applied a custom gradient map to push
the shiny metal strips into more contrast, brightening the highlights. I also used a custom WB setting to create the blue tint throughout.
Original source image in discussion thread.
