Continuing with the 'theme' of lurking under bridges, this is a fairly recent image I took whilst on a business trip to Paddington Basin.

I was attracted to the simple graphic strength of this image and how it reflects the strength of the bridge itself which leads to Little Venice. Those Victorians certainly knew how to use a rivet or two! For me though, it's those smears of dirty colour on the wall that actually make the picture work.

PP wise, the main adjustment after raw conversion and distortion correction using DXPro, was a sequence of levels adjustments to balance light coming in from the left. I also cloned in the left-most block on the wall for symmetry

Lovely image, at first you would think this was a black and white conversion until you see the dirt you mention. As for the processing its very good but as you mentioned cloning in the left block you've drawn attention to it, and on close examination you can see some opacity at the top of the block, whereas if you had not drawn attention I dont think anyone would have noticed! Cracking image though, great perspective

Good bit of lurking which produced a very satisfying image! Love the abstract quality of this and the very limited, almost mono tones, with the shiny bolts leading you into the picture.

Thanks for the comments everyone.

Lou, I did have more trouble with making the clone work than I could imagine- I think it's because of the very subtle and limited tones and colours. Well I've re-visited it as a result of your comment and think I have it truly cracked now, so many thanks for highlighting the issue.
