Closed For Lunch

Uploaded: May 24, 2019 | Entered: April 28, 2020 18:25:08


Around noon time I found this hamburger place. Sign out front said "Closed". I peeped through the window and saw their lights were on and workers behind the counter. I tried the door and it was unlocked, and ask if they were open. They said "yes". They had no clue their sign was showing "Closed"! Being the only customer in the restaurant with my camera with me, I took this photo of their empty dinning room. Hand-held, no flash. Applied tonal adjustments, open all the dark shadows, and balance the indoor lighting for this indoor shot in Photoshop 5.5.

Exif: F Number: 8, Exposure Bias Value: -0.67, ExposureTime: 1/10 seconds, Flash: did not fire, compulsory flash mode, ISO: 400, White balance: Auto white balance, FocalLength: 24.00 mm, Model: Canon EOS 5D Mark II

You had a great opportunity here to catch this place deserted for a moment and then you really did it justice with this cool treatment and mood! Nice find, Dean! #1725955

Unavailable EXIF: If there is no other information but 'Unavailable' in the EXIF (meaning no EXIF data exists with the photo), the 'Unavailable' blurb is not displayed. If there is any info, it shows. Many photos have the EXIF stripped out when people modify the image and resave it, before uploading.
