Winter Light

Back to experimenting with blur this week, as well as playing with some of the functionality Photoshop CS3 offers, after upgrading from CS2 - specifically the new black and white conversion method.
The theme of this jaunt into Colchester was supposed to be 'urban', but old habits die hard and when there's an old church to photograph, I become a moth to it's flame.
There are various themes or ideas running through this set - obviously movement, the hustle and bustle of the street, and the anonymity of crowds - but also a tilt into fantasy with 'neon' and the images of St. Botolph's. The final image of the cross, in particular, was intended to take on a cartoonish feel.
