Porthleven, Cornwall.

I'm sure this photograph will draw mixed opinions. It started as a colour shot, captured on a rather dull and dreary day. There was little to be gained from the colour content of the shot so I converted it to monochrome, upped the contrast and added a fair amount of grain, which I think works quite well.

Many years ago I took a photograph in London, looking across the River Thames towards St. Paul's Cathedral. It was shot on Kodak Tri-X film, pushed to 800 ASA (As it was then). It was then slightly over developed in Paranol developer, which produced a really contrasty, grainy negative; then printed on a hard paper. This digital shot of Porthleven harbour captures some of the feel of that shot, which I have always liked.
