Ok, I have managed to do the blog early in the week and not be late two weeks in a row! I am currently working on another photography project that I can’t say much about at the minute so I have not had a chance to go with the camera at the weekend. What I decided to do then was find a shot from earlier in the year and process it to black and white to see which people prefer.
The area is called Naas Harbour. I took the shot early in 2013, around January just as the schools resumed after the Christmas break. It is at the south end of the town beside the town library. Please feel free to comment or ask any question..
The first shot is the original shot with small contrast/exposure adjustments.
Settings : ISO 100, 18mm, f 4.5, 1/4sec (Tripod used)
For the second version I have used more of the features of lightroom than I would normally. After converting to black & white I adjusted the contrast, shadows and added the vignetting. The settings are the same obviously. I would really love to hear if people have a preference for either shot and why?
