Tate Britain – Looking Up


Again it is the mixed lighting that has given the SnapSeed app something to work with.

Had the roof been lit just by natural light from above, I am pretty certain these colours would not have been brought out in the processing.

So, what you are seeing is a shot from the newly constructed spiral staircase at the Tate Modern in London.

the staircase leads from the basement up to ground floor level and there is a decidedly Middle Eastern decorative effect in the pierced stonework.

In the previous post there is a shot of the arches seen at basement level.

    Interesting filter/treatment – I like the granular quality here.

      I saw this painting in the Tate – entitled ‘Brittany’, it was painted in 1914 by a painter named Edward Reginald Frampton.

      I think he used the Snapseed app ;-)

    Fascinating image … a lot to look at in it. My eyes are drawn to some lime-ish green part towards the top…
