A Simple Subject
A simple subject. Nothing remarkable.
An abandoned car dealership. Dirty window panes and rust. A standard case of urban decay.
Condensed water, streaking the glass, obeying gravity in its downward travels. A pattern of droplets, refracting the light.
Reflections of a building and the blue winter sky. White brick, its pattern repeating.
Seeing through to the brightly lit windows opposite, their shining glow.
A simple subject.
And yet. Layer upon layer, digging deeper and deeper.
If we are simply willing to see.
Texture Tuesday Processing
- In Adobe Camera Raw, set the Contrast, Shadows and Clarity sliders to +100; set the Highlights slider to -100 for a high-contrast, gritty look
- Bringing the image into Photoshop, process my mid-tone contrast action to further enhance the textures
- Add the Grey Day texture, blend mode = color burn and opacity = 61%
Below is the original RAW version of the image along with the Photoshop layers palette:
