Meters -- But Not The Camera Kind

I found this row of meters while wandering around my downtown area. Thought it made a good aperture shot. The first one is SOOC, the second is with a few textures.

Not sure which I like better, but I think the textures enhance an already interesting shot. Nice example for this week too.

Did you use some kind of filter? There's a great blue tone showing on my monitor.

That is a great example of what aperture can do. Really like the second one, I'm amazed at what can be done with these textures and actions..I really need to learn to use them!

Well I have to say I really admire those of you that can just shot anywhere, I have to get over my shyness of people looking at me and wondering what I am up too..lol

I like them both, I really need to learn textures now....so much to take in.
