Photo Friday challenge – Atmosphere – I know that I’m unlikely to have too much time this week to take anything else, and I was going to put this up soon anyway. It was taken on the same trip as my previous two shots and while I don’t remember quite what the sign was for (i.e. what it was advertising) I do think that it’s reasonably relevant for this theme.

I did try various colourised versions of this shot, as I did think this one was a bit flat, but they all ended up looking horribly lurid and unnatural, so I stuck with the black and white version. If I were to take this one again I’d probably balance the exposure a bit better; i.e. expose for the sky rather than leave it to the camera to work out. That way I suspect that I would have ended up with rather less noise in the image. That said, I suppose it does add to the atmosphere of the shot – at least that’s my excuse ;-)
