Taken whilst on a short break to amsterdam with uni field trip. Saw an image like this one time, and felt it was striking and powerful, so thought i would have a go myself.
I feel the image captures the culture of amsterdam within the photograph.
I have manipulated this in photoshop just to desaturate the background, then tweaking the contrast and brightness to make the foreground element stand out more.
Had considered highlighting all the red colouring in the background as it was in the red light district this was taken. However, felt it distracted too much from the foreground.
Hope you Like.
