Downtown Baton Rouge

10/21/2010:

This is a shot that I took back in December of last year.  It is another example of going back to look at photos that I have previously overlooked and trying my current workflow on them to see what I can get out of it.  I think it turned out pretty well.  Let me know what you think.

Baton Rouge (pronounced /ˌbætən ˈruːʒ/; French: Bâton-Rouge[bɑtɔ̃ ʁuʒ] ; Choctaw: Itta Homma; “red stick”) is the capital and second-largest city in LouisianaUnited States. It is located in East Baton Rouge Parish, which has a population of 434,633 (as of the 2009 census).  It owes its historical importance to its site uponIstrouma Bluff, the first bluff upriver from the Mississippi River Delta, which protects the city’s residents from flooding, hurricanes, and other natural disasters. In addition to this natural barrier, the city has built a levee system stretching from the bluff southward to protect the riverfront and low-lying agricultural areas.  Baton Rouge is a major industrial, petrochemical, medical, and research center of the American South. The Port of Baton Rouge is the ninth largest in the United States in terms of tonnage shipped. from wikipedia.
