[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Still on walkabout around the river at Yoker. The whole North bank of the River Clyde is being cleared and rebuilt, from the city centre all the way to Clydebank. During the day the noise of construction vehicles can be heard beyond the trees outside our flats.

This was presumably a building which stood on this tract of land. It is now a pile of concrete spars and lumps and twisted steel rods. I found a certain beauty in the random jumble of shapes. I took this picture looking down from the side of a large mound of earth which has been piled up next to the footpath. Light was failing, so I went as slow as I could, helped by the very short focal length.

I developed two versions of this; colour and black and white. I blurred the B&W layer, adjusted its tonal spread using curves, then overlaid the colour image. I then overlaid a red layer of limited opacity to give a warmer hue. I cropped the frame slightly at the bottom, removing a more distracting hole in the bottom block.
Finally a I resized and THEN sharpened, having foolishly done things the other way around of late.
