This month we are editing an image taken by Manal Ali. The scene captured by Manal, immediately made me think of an artist whose work I admire – Alvaro Castagnet and I knew I’d like to try and take the image in this direction. The dark wet streets and long light reflections are so appealing and mysterious in Alvaro’s paintings.
This is my interpretation of Manal’s image.
I wasn’t sure whether I should be going in this artful direction or if it should have remained photographic – so I did also try a photographic interpretation. I didn’t like this one as much, but here it is so you can see the things I tried.
..and here are all three together in a gallery.

Once again, I’ve really enjoyed this process, knowing that there are others working on the same image – You can view them all on Stacy’s blog at Visual Venturing.
I hope the link will be correct (I am scheduling before Stacy’s post). If not for some reason, click here 😀
