On my walk across the Skanstull’s Bridge the other day it was all foggy and humid, and totally grey. I was overwhelmed by the ambience; all colours were gone. The people looked small and lonely. I took a number of photos on the bridge.
When editing my photos later, I enhanced and sharpened the barbed wire and the fence, as well as the rails. The darkness of the architectural concrete elements was still compact – I had to lighten it up.
The colour of the sky could perhaps become more dramatic? Smog instead of fog… I added some grey-yellowish, and instantly lost my interest for the greyness that was my original idea. Instead, the yellow tone added some urban dystopic beauty to the scene.
I also lost interest for the walking couple and focused on the young man instead.
IF I had used a tripod and perhaps another, better camera, I could have enlarged the image further. But still, I am content with the final result. Probably I’ll go back there, come closer and try to focus on a single person directly, next time.
