Another view of the beautiful Hemesferic building in Valencia.
I shot this in strong afternoon sun, this really brings out the graphic nature of the building and again I felt this image suited black and white better than colour.
I processed the RAW file n colour and did the BW conversion using a combination of Channel Mixer and Black and White adjustment layers in Photoshop CS3. I went for string contrast and dark blue skies in my conversion which simulates the effect of using a strong Red filter (corrected, thanks krimage!) with BW film.
Finally I added a little grain and edge sharpened to bring out as much detail in the structure as possible.
