Remember this image? This has to be one of my favourite images from the Manchester Unity Building. I am not going to play with this image, I don’t really think there is any need to. So, how does this end up as one of my images on my rework Friday?
Well there is more than one way to rework an image. On Tuesday I was allowed to go back to the Manchester Unity Building to do some tower shots and while I was there, I popped into the boardroom and found a beautiful crystal bowl on the table and couldn’t resist doing the image again.
This image was taken from a different angle and has a different view. I like that you can see St Paul’s Cathedral in the first left window. The bowl on the table gives a great reflection. I like the lamp on the old radio as well.
The first image is very simplistic, very straight forward. There is a word for it, but for the life of me I can’t think of what it is, I am sure it will come to me. In comparison the second image is lot busier. I don’t think that detracts from it, and shows a lot more of the room, and I think gives you more sense of what the room is.
I have processed the image above, in much the same way I did the one from yesterday, only there is more layers in this one. I do like the way I am doing the blur a lot more. I think it is more subtle.
I also thought you might like to see another image.
This area is also in the Boardroom, on the opposite to the windows. It is such an imposing area, yet, when you enter the board room it is the area you notice last. The large table and all the old chairs around it do take your breath away, then you turn around to look at the room and you see this little lounging area. The chairs look so comfortable.
The fireplace or the mantle, if that is what you call it, it quite interesting. I spent a lot of time doing some stuff with blurring to bring out the ridges and to make them stand out more. I love how it ended up. Though I will admit it was doing my head in doing it. I was getting giddy.
I still have more work to do with the Manchester Unity Building, but not a lot, it is all coming to an end. I love that building so much. It really was wonderful to be invited in to take photos of it. I hope to get more invitations to other buildings
