This is the underneath of the Oberbaumbrucke, Berlin. Germany

I’ve seen this technique on here and thought I would give it a go too.
It was this fantastic piece by Kim Calvert that gave me the kick I needed to try it.

This one makes me feel a whole lot of different things at once. You can decide how it translates.

This is an existing piece in my folio that I cropped, enlarged and reworked. Added a green and red filter, blended and added radial blur filter. All done in photoshop.
