Photographer's Note

I've mentioned before in my posts the view from gasworks park. Well, here it is. Two women were sitting enjoying the view, right in the centre of one of the steps. I liked the symmetry of them and the city beyond and took a photo as I had my camera out to photograph the park (which I haven't posted yet actually).

Decided to go with B&W as the colours weren't particularly inspiring, and the sky didn't look like it really fitted (even though it did because it was there).

It wasn't actually as ominous as this, but the picture felt more balanced if I brought out the detail in the cloud a little more. It's not a huge change, but more than I normally do on my photos. I used curves in PS almost exclusively in this shot.

To further enhance the rather over-dramatic effect of the shot, I've added in more of a pronounced vignette than I normally would. I stopped short of applying a film grain, or printing it out and soaking it in tea :)
