Dark Orb

Dark Orb

Close-up view of the monstrous Atomium in Brussels. I didn’t think I’d like this modern structure, but it so dominates the northern space around the Laeken Park and Expo center area that it’s hard not to appreciate. There will be several other shots featuring this landmark to come.

Lightroom auto contrast, vignette, sharpening and filter. Minor cloning/cleanup of surface imperfections.
