Photographer's Note

Fenix West

On my way to a supermarket, passing the door of an old warehouse on the Rijnhaven (Rhine docks) the strong visual interaction between the overpowering red circle and the door handle struck me. The F10 was as always in my coat pocket.

This is the last one of this industrial mini-series. In the next triptych: the Montevideo high rise in Rotterdam.

PCS2 tech: slightly cropped, altered the contrast, saturation, curves and levels for the whole pic and some elements separately, USM-ed (this time a two pass approach: first 0,3 p 180% to bring out the craquelure of the paint and then a gentle 3,1p 30%), added a frame and saved for the web.
