The yellow metal roller shutter of a loading bay in Chinatown, Manchester.

Colour, contrast and grain all pushed in post processing. Only the blur is untouched :-)

1/15 second in shutter priority mode and a quick swing of the camera did the's great to get away from the straightjacket of sharpness from time to time!
