A Birmingham Day Out 9/21

AMONG TALL BUILDINGS

Another shot from Brindleyplace taken as we were walking away from the square towards the Crescent Theatre that I showed on 5th.June. Here we really are down among the high rise buildings but also there are some fine reflections in the side of the foremost building. It took quite a lot of work to take out the leaning verticals in this one because of the camera being held upwards. Good old ShiftN and Photoshop.

Brian Walbey: I just glanced up this alley and there it was, I couldn't avoid taking it.

Indeed so Brian - your picture here is a testimonial to those two pieces of software
Brian Walbey: I now have another freebie for straightening verticals called DxO Viewpoint, but I have yet to master it.

Brian Walbey: Thanks Philine, but it took a lot of work to straighten up the vertical lines.

Brian Walbey: Indeed Bill, I now have another freebie for straightening verticals called DxO Viewpoint, but I have yet to master it.

An essential tool for the contemporary photographer - when I think back to the the hassle with tilting enlarger heads and masking frames!
Brian Walbey: They certainly are Mike, I used to go through all that hassle in my darkroom days also, what a pain!
great reflection in the windows of that second building
Brian Walbey: Part of what originally caught my eye Chantal.
Great perspective with these reflections Brian!
Brian Walbey: Thanks to handy software Richard, but the reflections were what first caught my eye.

Good work on the editing, Brian; much cheaper than shift and tilt lens. I like the traffic cones (I don't often say that wink !
Brian Walbey: Thanks Alan, much easier than doing this in the darkroom. At first the cones annoyed me but without them the centre of the shot would be a bit empty.
Interesting shot of materials, buildings and reflection. Shutterchance seems a bit sticky at the moment, took a while to get to your blog.
Brian Walbey: I saw this and thought I'd give it a try and it seemed to work. My blog 'seized' a few minutes ago, and I had quite a job getting back in again, it seems o.k.now.

Great image with all of the reflections Brian... and a superb job of ShiftN... i haven't tried to do that yet... but i will some day....petersmile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Peter. ShiftN is good for dealing with converging verticals and all for nothing, can't be bad.
Depressing, aren't they?
Brian Walbey: I can't argue with that thought Tom, but just this once they made a decent picture.

This could have been in Leicester.
Brian Walbey: Or any other big city these days Richard.
