Entrance to Liverpool's Albert dock with a blue sky. This image appeared in the book 'Liverpool Then and Now' for which I took the 'now' photographs.
The lighting in this scene presented problems. Because of the direction of the sun, the foreground is in shadow and dark, whilst the sky is bright. In RAW I lightened the darker areas whilst keeping the sky at the lighter tone. Still some of the clouds are a little over-exposed, but not excessively. Finally I straightened the verticals using 'Correct camera distort' in Photoshop.
