Trying to make sense of a weird world - and maybe make it a little better

View from A Dove
A few years ago I shot a roll of black and white film. I got it processed with a contact sheet, but for some reason it turned out to be severely underexposed, to the point where I could barely make out the subjects. The other day I scanned it (with an Epson V700 for those who are wondering) and played around with the results in Photoshop (at which I am far from expert - in fact a beginner) to see if i could get something out of the negatives - which were also rather dusty and scratched. This shot - the best exposed of the bunch - needed quite a lot of manipulation, but I am quite pleased with the rather moody feel that resulted. So here it is.
