This was a fun one to do. Checking Bowie's songs I found one with some nice lines about the city. I already had a trip planned to the big city, Edinburgh, so I knew I had the opportunity to get some city shots. And very unusual for me, I already had in mind what to shoot.
After shooting the first images in my hotel room (Bowie, myself and the mirror) I went out and had a nice stroll through the city, looking for a nice cityscape, an interesting wall and some old lantern. The big moment was when I crossed the railway, walking through that tunnel and found that graffiti wall with the light. Bingo!

The rest was up to post-processing. I know there are still some flaws in it, but overall I'm satisfied with the result. Thank you all for your nice votes and comments.

I think this was certainly weird and intriguing, as Don said, and I think I prefer it among the top competitors based upon the focal points and detail. the "bleach bypass and added structure" feel to the shot enhance it, give it a near "journalistic" quality.
