Now I felt like posting something a little darker, in homage to the ominous skies which are overhead.
This is a shot from the weekend spent in London. The Canary Wharf has many such sky-scrapers; these probably aren't sky-scrapers but I do live in the country and come from the fens. Bus stops seem kind of massive to me. If I were to ever go to New York I imagine I would dare not set foot on the streets. ;)
The original was a little ordinary so I have combined RAWs and played around with all manner of attributes to get to this as it is now. All in all I used about 10 adjustment layers including curves, black and white filter, photo filter and some layer blending modes.
That is it for me for tonight as I am off soon to a barbeque. Yes, you did read correctly. Why we are having a barbeque in this weather is anyone's guess. The lady who is having this barbeque is part of local organisation that we do work for so it's a kind of an informal get-together. It should be fun providing we don't get washed away.
