A week or so ago I did a post on Monet and his influence on me. With the post I put up the following image from the boardroom at the Manchester Unity Building.
I like the image, but I did it quickly and it wasn’t until afterwards that I realised the blue lines. I didn’t like those and decided that I would have to try and get rid of them. I also felt the lights were too dominant, so I thought if I redid it that I would fix those things.
The reworked has been cropped a little differently as well. The lights are not sticking out as much, and I think that is much better. The blue lines are now white and they stand out less, which is what I had tried to achieve.
I took my time doing this rework, and I think it worked far better because of it. I like how the emphasis is more on the table and the leather chairs around it. You can see the grain in the table more as well.
The rework has given the image a different look and I think it works far better than the first attempt.
The weekend is upon us again and I would like to try and get out to take come photos, but we are in the middle of a heat wave. Seems we are setting new records, if the weather forecasts are correct then we can expect very hot weather until Wednesday next week. I think we are all over it now, looking forward to some cooler days.
