I was going to post another shot of the polygraph today (I have another three or maybe four shots that are worth using) but I took this photograph instead and decided I’d rather use it today – the other shots can wait.
In case it isn’t obvious, it’s a shot of the grill on the front of our car; the one immediately in front of the windscreen. The original was supposed to be red but, stupidly, I still had the camera set to a custom white balance from when I took the shots of the polygraph. And as those shots were taken under fluorescent lighting it really messed up the colour balance of this one. I did try to get it to something approaching the original scene but it came out either too pink, or the wrong shade of red. So I gave up trying. And, having seen the original, the blue actually works a lot better.
While you’re here – if you have the time – I’d like some feedback on my alternative individual entry archive page, the one you get to by clicking the display image only link. When I first created this site I thought the picture frame effect worked quite well, but now I’m wondering whether something a bit more minimalist might be better (e.g. something like brownglasses or pixpopuli). Anyway, I’d appreciate your thoughts.
