I have been sitting on this image for a while now, I must have edited it 10 times or so and never been happy with it until this latest edit you see here and one that I am finally happy with.
What you are looking at here, well, some of you may say its a spiral staircase but strictly its not if you look closely. It gives the illusion of one I suppose but actually isn’t.
It was quite hard to take the original photo and get it framed in the camera as you are literally on top of the circular opening, you need a very wide lens. I didn’t want to use my Samyang 14mm as this would have given too much distortion in the overall image so I went for a slightly tilted POV. Agreed you do loose a bit from the tops and bottoms but I feel its a compromise and works with the circular structure.
One image from the archives and one that I didn’t think was salvageable, thats why its important to keep checking through your photos from time to time as you do find that odd image that you miss from time to time.
I had spent most part of this morning working on another image that I took yesterday around Scarborough but just wasn’t really getting anywhere with it, no matter how I edited it I just didn’t feel it was right so decided to leave it and try another photo, don’t worry I will revisit that image sometime soon.
Anyone else get frustrating days like where you just can’t get the editing right?
I hope your all having a good week so far!
