Under The El - First day

The "El" is short for" Elevated " and is the nickname for the rapid transit system operated by the CTA in Chicago. I was there for a convention in 1991 where luckily I took a few photo's of the El. It was hot and humid (completely the opposite of what I was expecting) but I have decided to change the mood and lighting and make it look more like "The Windy City" of it's reputation and have set it on a very rainy day instead - Cityscapes always seem to suit rainy or snowy weather. I am going to keep it mostly monochrome with just a few flashes of pure colour for the traffic signals and car lights, the early stages being painted in transparent layers, the opaque highlights coming later.
