Uchujin’s post reminded me of the above picture (where someone kindly explained to me that the faery lights were caused by light bouncing off the film / sensor, and being reflected back (again) by a filter), which in turn made me want to reprocess the shot. Not sure what kind of ‘look’ i was going for in the original, but it feels very heavyhanded now.

In turn this reminded me of a long discussion on Sunday evening regarding this shot of Sean’s. There is very little similar between the shots, Sean’s has his trademark cinematic look, whereas this seems rather closed / foreshortened. No colour washes, or sense of mystery here either… but hey, i’ve stolen the crop!
