Sea I: Outfall
Film processing times are now pushing two-weeks thanks to easter, so it is back to digital for a while and a short sequence of recent sea-side pictures from around Barcelona. This is a jetty at part of the redeveloped sea-front at Badalona, even if it does look a little like an attempt at starting a trans-mediterranean bridge…
To keep some kind of consistency with the previous set these were shot with a 50m lens and stacked NB8 and polarising filters. The composition was chosen as a crude segue from the city sequence. The images in the sequence are cropped to 16:9 partly in the vague hope that it might give a more cinematic feel, partly to deemphasise the sky (which was not particularly exciting), but mostly because it seemed a good idea at the time.
Post-processing was in Lightroom using a custom colour calibration to get a consistent (if unrealistic) set of colours. One image in the sequence is a composite of two in Photoshop, to remove some rather pedestrian pedestrians.
