Dirty window and white curtain; Penzance, Cornwall, 27 Apr 2012.
Colour has been restored to the window frame and the image cropped to have darkness on both sides. The window frame’s shadow is convoluted by the poorly hung curtain, and this shadow has been darkened to emphasise this. The grime on the window adds to the effect.
The blue frame reminds me somewhat of a crucifix, but this was certainly not in my mind when I photographed it.
Click onto the image to see a larger version in a separate window – recommended.
Technique: D700 with 70-300 Nikkor lens at 300mm; 400 ISO; converted to mono and with selective colour restoration via Silver Efex Pro 2.
