Project Development

Big School, Magdalen College School

When photographing this window, I spent considerable extra time covering exposures that would allow me to remove digitally the dark shadow at the top of the window.

It interested me to see that the school’s published version of this image precludes the mullions making less of a wide landscape, which may be a good thing.  However, the flow of the ‘bridges’ within the windows disrupted a little as a result.  The copy of there image depicted here, is very poor quality, but does suggest a generous amount of post editing with the saturation aggressively high.
