This is a fountain in the courtyard of the Heard Museum in Phoenix, AZ. I was at the museum for The 2011 World Hoop-dancing Finals. This shot was taken on Sunday afternoon near the end of the competition and a worker was hosing off the ground and cleaning up. The fountain was framed nicely by the archway. I wish I could go back with a ladder to shoot it again from just a little higher perspective.
In this photo I did some perspective correction. I removed a length of red rubber hose that was lying in the foreground and I removed some people that were wandering about in the background. I added a little sharpening to the trees to add some life to the limbs and leaves. A little burn in on the tables, chairs and middle-ground. Finished it with a very slight vignette around the edges.
