The Trafford Centre, mausoleum to shopping, it's many avenues of retail despair. Not forgetting the many waistcoated and blazered 'security' staff ready to herd you off the property if caught snapping. Fact of the day...The Trafford Centre used up all the available Gold leaf from the UK in it's construction to give it's columns, statues and domes the 'blingtastic' feel. So the image above is a layer stack of these below...Lightroom >edit>open as layers in photoshop >align>opacity....set the opacity of all the layers to 30% or there abouts.....no blend modes and just a bit of sharpening using high pass filter on a desaturated duplicate layer...time to stop as I'm drifting off into Photoshop bollocks...
What's all this then????
An unyeilding torrent of Photo babbel full of unconfirmed facts and manufactured photo drivel.. take from it what you like, it won't change the world but may leave you feeling nauseous...
