Brighton West Pier in Sea Mist

by | Blog, Uncategorized

Back in Brighton I took loads of photographs on my late afternoon
visit, walking from one pier to the ruined West Pier. I remembered seeing it before I left England in the 1990’s, It was being renovated into a huge restaurant come night club but had mysteriously caught fire.
Today this is all that remains of this Victorian iron construction, impossibly expensive to repair and left to rot gracefully like a whales skeleton.
New plans are afoot to mark its spot by building a huge new ‘London Eye’ type structure. But for now this wreck is the perfect resting place for migratory starlings!

The first landscape version had already been brightened with Matmos Lake added, flipped vertically and desaturated. Jill suggested it would also be nice cropped square and re-textured. This is the result!

Simple, light processing was called for as there was already quite a lot going on texturally already.
From the Summer Painterly set I used:

Aquarius – Soft Light @ 100% desaturated to a pale blue tone
Brushed Rose – Soft Light @ 100%

A final tweak of the merged image to pull the sky tones together.
