Another Photo Story

Over the weekend I went for a walk along Cardiff Bay while my wife and daughter were in Morrisons getting the groceries. In that area is the Cardiff International Pool. A large modern glass building that looks very impressive. Lots of people take photos of this, so i thought i would try to be different and just concentrate on the entrance. This is another piece of modern architecture aimed at creating an impact. When i got it home, though I didn't think that it had that special something to make the abstract image that I was hoping for. If it was going to come any where near that it would need some work doing on it.

I started with the original.....


I then rotated this by 90 degrees and added a border. i changed the levels to get it more contrasty. Now it beginning to look more like the sort of image that I wanted. But I was on a roll. I saved that then changed the hue on a copy to make the sky yellow. When I inverted this the sky was back to being blue ( though fading to black rather than white ! ) and the metal work that had been a silhouette was now pure white. I liked that effect, but suddenly I thought, why not have both ? I swopped the copy horizontally so that it reflected the original. Then I increased the canvass size and put them up against each other. The result was not quite a reflection, but a reflection with a partial inversion.

I felt pleased with the result this time..

Apologies in advance for all those purists who think that a photograph should essentially be created in the camera with minimal editing.
