Photographer's Note

This building was designed by BCQ Arquitectura and is situated at the marina next to the photovoltaic plant down by the forum in Barcelona.

The architects blurb about this building romantically suggests that the weathered steel "creates the image of a great ship washed up on the shore after a storm". In reality it does but only for the fact that it is surrounded by multimillion pound yachts.

I tried to create a high contrast black and white split tone that was suggestive of a water colour style painting. Several reasons - it emphasised the rust of the steel structure; in the original image there is a sewage plant looming large in the background and finally, I just like to wind Will Perrett up with my post processing!
