Title • under the westway #1

First of all, thanks for all the comments on my entries that went up while I was away. I haven't had time to read them all yet, but I'll get to them at some point over the next day or so.

What I did notice was that a couple of people asked me for a bit more information about the exhibition, specifically which pictures of mine were used. There were two: light rain and light rain revisited, both of which went up on chromasia last October. And I have to say that it was great to see them on display. The exhibition was at Westbourne Studios, Notting Hill, and the images are framed (put up around the bar area) and projected onto one of the larger walls; hence this shot. And I know it's a bit self-congratulatory to put up a photograph of one of my own photographs but it's the first exhibition I've been involved with and I'm determined to make the most of it ;-)

As for this shot: the bar was divided from the main seating area by a set of folding glass doors which were folded back against one another. It's these that the rightmost two-thirds of this shot were taken through. As for post-processing: nothing much has been done to this shot other than an increase in contrast and some noise reduction.

Update: on posting this one I decided that there was something about the colours that just didn't work for me, so I've posted a colourised version instead. The original version can be seen here. Let me know which one you prefer.
