Liverpool from all angles by Ian Chantler

November 2021 - Liverpool from all angles

About the Image(s)

I was in Liverpool in July walking along Man Island where it reaches the Pier Head as always looking around for something interesting the lighting was perfect and the gallery floor of the Museum of Liverpool was being reflected in the black glass of one of the new office blocks it really appealed to me so I took a couple of shots and this was the one I liked I so love looking for smaller more intimate images within the bigger picture.

How I did it
Camera Canon EOS 5D Mark III lens EF24-105mm f/4L IS USM focal length 105mm f7.1 ISO 100 1/400s the RAW file was adjusted in Photoshop then converted to mono using a gradient map on an adjustment layer contrast adjusted a small amount of burning on the lighter areas and sharpened using a high pass filter.

This sort of building seems to be a note west speciality with both Manchester and Salford Quays having some great examples.
I really like such buildings as, as you suggest, have potential for all sorts of detail images.
A great image in all respects.   Posted: 11/15/2021 07:10:58

Ian - a well seen architectural image from a great viewpoint which has a slightly abstract feel about it. Love the shapes and the complimentary reflection. Well processed as usual!   Posted: 11/15/2021 08:32:05
