The honest colour

As promised, here is a photo of the curtain that has been manipulated on the computer. The first thing I have done is crop it. I took it to black and white and then added a little red and a little yellow, which is usually known as sepia.

It would be better to take the photo at night because then the curtain lights would be at their best. However by changing brightness and contrast you can also increase the effect of the lights.

These are simple techniques on a computer but they can really transform photos. As for honesty, have you seen the way that any decor is affected by disco lights? They take on the colour of the light. What is the honest colour of the curtain? Well it depends on the honest light.

Happy snapping
