Abandoned Gas Station in Skokie, Illinois (2018-07-12 16-41-55a)
The gas station is located at 3342 Dempster Street, Skokie, Illinois. Although currently vacant, it could easily be re-opened and is up for sale so I guess that, technically, it’s not abandoned, but it’s not in use currently. Considering the number of gas stations in the area which, once closed, have never reopened and were eventually torn down, abandoned is not that far off.
The photo was taken using a Nikon Coolpix P7700 camera and edited using Luminar 2018. First I straightened the image and cropped it a bit. Then I added the Accent-AI filter and used the RAW Develop Filter to raise the contrast, whites and clarity. I added the Polarizing filter and used the Tone filter to lower the SmartTone. Lastly I used the Brilliance/Warmth filter to raise the vividness and the warmth of the image.
