Rainy afternoon in Manchester

Reflections on the Canal

Hi All,

I took this image on a very overcast and raining saturday afternoon in Manchester. As I was walking over the canal bridge I noticed the reflections on the water an decided I had to take the picture.

I think the W995 held up surprisingly well considering the conditions. Because of the overcast grey skies I decieded to convert to black and white, after tweaking the levels in Photoshop I finally got the image I’d been after.

I did originally plan to crop the image to include only the reflected buildings but compositionally this didnt work at all as I felt it lacked a bit of context.
