Am just sharing the fruit of my Dockland adventure. This image was taken with the Nikon D7000 with the kit lens. Only new thing is that I finally bought a polariser filter. Not exactly a massive expense but it’s been something that I should have. I must admit it makes a huge difference. Next purchase is ND Filter.Back to the image below
The original image was in colour but I wanted to strip the colour off, to make the focus the buildings, the bridge and most of all the sky. It was 2hours before sunset, and the sky turned a deeper shade of blue and golden in places. Which what in grey her.Editing
For Editing, I mainly used Lightroom 5. I adjusted the contrast in the vibrance and also the whites and blacks. This part is really important when changing to B&W, I personally think. The white balance was also adjusted. I then changed the image to B&W.
To add a little bit of depth to the image, I used the brush tool to bring out some more information such as the building especially the bricks and the glass windows. To highlight the reflection on them.
