I was walking toward the waterfront when I saw these three buildings seemingly framed in a fourth. And I thought, “wow – cool reflections.”
As I shot, I wasn’t sure whether the best picture would be the wide angle or a medium telephoto of a segment of the reflections. But when I got home and really looked at the exaggerated distortions in one row of windows, I decided to use that photo also. But rather than just cropping, I decided to use the whole file and darken the top and bottom rows to emphasize the one in the middle.
When I first started this project, I said I would only use Photoshop for basic correction of exposure, contrast and for cropping. But, as you can tell from this shot and some recent color photos that were converted to B/W, I’ve decided to give myself a little more room to play.
