This shot was taken at roughly the same time as the one I posted on Monday, but takes a rather different approach. My previous shot focused on the piano itself, and with that shot I was aiming for detailed elegance – for want of a better way of putting it. This one, on the other hand, focuses on the reflected sky and has a much less detailed feel. On the whole I think I definitely prefer the other shot, but I do quite like this one too.

I should also add, perhaps, that this is a relatively straight shot. I upped the contrast and saturation a little, but other than that I didn’t do too much else to it. Oh, and unusually, this is a crop – it’s the bottom left 75% of the original. I normally try to avoid posting cropped images, but the original version really didn’t work at all well so I thought I’d put this one up.
