Title • the geometry of waste (a)

This is the first of a couple of shots of our local waste recycling/disposal plant (the other takes a wider angle of view), and it's my least favourite of the two, not least because it required far too much work in Photoshop in terms of both resizing and sharpening. Most of my initial attempts ended up with moiré patterns over much of the image, which, after a considerable amount of trial and error, I finally managed to reduce to an acceptable level. And if it wasn't for the fact that I really like the various shapes and textures in this shot I think I might have abandoned trying to get it to work at this resolution. Anyway, all that said, I'm reasonably happy with the way it turned out and do think it captures something of the striking architectural nature of this building. (I haven't included the EXIF data for this shot as, given the amount of manipulation, it really wouldn't be all that meaningful).
