Per Ardua ad Mancunia

I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die.

This is what happens when you can sit all day playing with photoshop!

Starwars, anyone? I like it!
David Johnson: Too infinity and beyond...all the way to Gorton...hey almost threw this in the recycle bucket!
Very atmospheric--the building looks malevolent. It would be interesting to compare this with the original.
David Johnson: OO the original was recycle fodder, very flat, very grey, but with the bonus of being RAW with an oky dokey exposure, so dragged things out that at first glance weren't there!
Amazing atmosphere. I too would be interested to what the original was like. (:o)
David Johnson: It was heading for the recycle bin, one of those ho hum very, very grey days so this what happens when it gets out of Photoshop ER

Visionary. (As you can seee ... words fail me)
David Johnson: My current wife tells me its a man thing, using one word where a sentence would suffice, not to worry back to the old tosh soon, creating something like this happens only once in a while!
Nice capture and angle of the B Tower.
David Johnson: It really is leaning like this because of all the wind and rain....honest....no really....

Very atmospheric shot - it's a really interesting tower & your time spent on photoshop has clearly brought some impact.
David Johnson: Ha think the Stoke/ Smoke thing is great! Ta forr the comment.
Always thought that 'Blade Runner' was shot in Manchester: must have been all that rain!
David Johnson: I think Ive started to shrink because of all the rain that has hit me recentley, out today in the badlands of Trafford and burnt to a crisp????? I really am confused(could be an age thing)

when handled right architecture looks amazing, like here...
David Johnson: Trouble is what to follow it with as a lot of the other buildings here are ....er......tiddly non descripts, must give a big up for Mr Photoshop for helping with this as well!

now all you need is another day to transcribe it into a maxblack tute for all to enjoy. Wonderful work
David Johnson: Do you really wanna know because this is a simple way of getting something out of a very flat exposure!
