Everytime we go to Andrew Haydon Park we walk around the yault club. There was an event on the night I took this picture so there were lots of sailboats out on the river. When we were walking back the sun was setting and there was beautiful colour in the sky. But when it came to processing this image, there were big problems with the colour. Nothing I did could fix what ever had happened so I converted it to black and white and tried a split tone in Lightroom. I finished it in Photoshop, where I cropped the image to put more negative space behind the boat to make this a stronger and more interesting composition. The final step was to curve the image. Something was still not right and then, totally by mistake I tapped the mouse which changed the curve into something that I would never have done on purpose. It broke all the rules and I loved it. Sometimes making a mistake is the best thing you can do. Click on the image to enlarge for better viewing.
