I was visiting my Dubai office the other day. While waiting for my bus at Abu Dhabi Bus Terminal, I was looking around for something interesting enough to shoot.
This was one of many (Bilis) the fire extinguishers that had been put up on the wall. They are all in the open so the colors are all faded. This one had some what faded instructions/ details which were printed on it more of like a stamp. To bring out some detail I added lot of contrast to it which also added saturation to colors. It's been a while I've gone this route production wise. The first option, saturated reds and yellows made a very vibrant and grungy image. I wanted to try and see if I could process it in some other ways with may be less vibrance, so I ended up doing four different versions of it. In the end I guess the first one still stood out more then the rest but I think they were all worth putting on the blog and together look even better.
You can look at each one of them by hiding the others and then may be compare all at once.
