Your first thought on seeing this may be: ‘What the heck is that?’ And my answer would be: ‘Does it matter – would knowing what it is change your opinion of it as an abstract image?’
It’s an image that is simply about colour, geometry and shape. There has been no fancy work to clone out, alter or add content. This is what I saw – subject to basic processing (levels, curves, brightness), a minor adjustment to saturation, and some work to align the image with Lens Correction and Transform plus a slight crop. Lastly, as I often do with this type of work, before sharpening, I added Poster Edge and blended it down to add just a touch of extra bite.
But since you will be wondering, it’s another image from Geneva Airport. This is a reflection that I saw as I was sitting, facing the outside curved glass windows, in one of the circular hubs at which aircraft dock some distance from the main terminal building. The blue girders you see are some of the radial spokes that converge to create the roof. Frankly, when I look at this, some of the other elements puzzle me as I am not entirely sure what they all are, apart from the glass sided staircase that angles up leftwards in the image. But that is all really irrelevant.
What appeals to me is just the arrangement of colours, shapes and lines and the balance that seems to be there through chance.
