Today I’m sharing another shot from my trip to the Ogden industrial area here in Calgary. This is right in front of the ADM Milling shop just off Ogden road. I was drawn to this yellow box overflowing with ropes because it provided a great splash of warm colour in an otherwise very cool scene. Looking for contrast like this is something that I’ve started to pay a bit more attention to, and I’ve found it can make images much more compelling.

It was kind of a gloomy day, and there wasn’t much interest in the background, so I applied some blur in onOne’s Focalpoint 2 to really draw attention to the box. I also selectively boosted the yellow a bit really make the box the focal point of the image.

  1. Sweet shot and some really nice post here.

    I think I may have preferred the focal point to be a little closer so that the base of the box is in full focus and the metal item in the rear has a bit more soft focus – that’s just a personal preference and not a fault though. great work!
