photoblog image Some Wall in Barcelona

Some Wall in Barcelona


Shot in Barcelona, while riding on the Blue Line of the touristic bus. I'm not sure anymore but this wall is in the neighborhood of an old prison and not so far of Montjuic. Please correct me if I would be wrong.


TECH-INFO: just one JPG, lens-distortion corrected and perspective straightened in DxO Optics Pro. In Photoshop I made the contrast much stronger (using a few layers and by twiddling a bunch of properties to affect only certain tonal ranges). On the bottom of the image was a small part of a traffic light, which I removed by just making a copy of another piece of the image (called "plastic surgery", described in my previous post). A full traffic light would have enhanced my image really a lot but now it's too late to make another picture. The sun was giving nice and warm light though I made it stronger by first desaturating it partly with the B/W tool and by adding a warm photo filter. At end some vignetting is added and in the middle is made brighter with more contrast (using a brightness/contrast layer).

One could get dizzy looking at this marvellous pattern shot for too long Paul.
Beautiful result from all of that processing!

hehe. Some wall? It's a great shot. Mesmerizing pattern. Good light for it, too.
Very well spotted.... superb abstract and works well with the shadows too. Nice.
