Near london, Uk, on train, 9th march 2012.

Taken from my train window as I travelled into London Liverpool Street, I have no idea what this wonderful building is but just loved its shape and towers.
Compact camera Powershot A3100 IS
F. 2.7 Exps 1/250 sec, ISo 100 FL 6mm

Texture by Kim Klassen Shades of November free down load.

Worked in CS3 in blending mode to add the texture and Efex pro 3 colour in Tonal Contrast to add texture to the image, lifted the rails and building texture prior to texture being added.

    Wonderful industrial piece Karen…..the grungy processing really suits this well!

  • Thank you Trish just loved the building and wanted to make it a bit more Grungy, may try another sort of processing on this soon as not sure the texture a little heavey. Still learning. Hope you are well.

    A lovely capture and treatment dear Karen.
    It looks very much like Battersea Power Station.
    Where you on a train going out of Victoria Station,
    as it is on the left hand side after you go over the bridge.
    Hope thats helpful.x

    Karen, wonderful pov. Love the diagonal lines of the rails offset by the vertical lines of the building. Terrific texture! Sandy
