ReWorking the Etched Glass in Reception
Back in January, on my birthday I believe, I posted two images, one of them was from the reception area of the 11th floor of the Manchester Unity Building. I thought I was finished with the images from the building, but I am starting to think I never will be.
As I was putting all the images together to give to the Manchester Unity, I saw this one and a cringe crept up my back. I knew that it had to be one of the ones that I should rework. I know we discussed how dark my work can be yesterday, but I suspect this is a little too dark. So I redid it today.
So what have I done differently? The blur isn’t as strong. I’ve been toning down how strong I apply the blur. This image is so much lighter, and you can see the chair more. I think in the original the chair just looked in the way and not part of the image. I think it works better in this one. I found in the original there was too much blue behind the etched glass so I have changed it to be greener, I think the green tones add more warmth to the image. Overall I think this image is far more warmer and welcoming. What do you think?
I thought I would do another gallery for you so you can see all the images put together, there are a lot of them, so I hope you don’t mind. It is nice to see them altogether. I am not going to put titles on them all, but you know what they all are.
I may do one more of those images again, but basically they will stay as they are. It is interesting to see how the work and what I do evolves as my skill levels increase.
I just wanted to mention again how you can donate money towards this blog.
So if you enjoy this blog and would like to help it continue, or you find you learn a lot and pick up new ideas and skills, then please consider making a donation.
