Engineering Works

The photograph above looks to the east through the Stevenson & Cheyne engineering works beside the Water of Leith at Bonnington.

Here is the original photo that I took.

Edinburgh at Work  -  Stevenson & Cheyne, Bonnington, Edinburgh 

The scene looked very green because of the old fluorescent lighting used to illuminate much of the works.  Adding a filter to remove the green cast was not very successful as it introduced an 'artificial' tints to areas that were lit by daylight.

Sepia Picture

So I converted the image to sepia, which I thought seemed appropriate for an image that looks as if it might have been taken in the early 1900s.  It was, in fact, taken in 1992.

Sepia +Colour Picture

However, in the sepia image above, it was not obvious that the brazier was lit, so I made the image at the top of this page, which is mainly sepia but retains some of the original colour:
