Brandon walking along the edge of Lake Michigan near the Alder Planetarium. There was a couple of other people in the shot but I found them distracting so I removed them. I love Photoshop.
Opinion time…with or without grain.
I’m not really so vain as to think you want to look this close at me. I have been wanting to experiment with up close shots and for a lack of willing subjects I used myself. Just messin around. And, I’m not normally quite this serious! :)
It’s a little more centered than I intended, but oh well. Oh, and I lied when I said one more black and white yesturday. Here’s another. :)
Ok, one more black and white. Nothing special, just messing around just after sunset. Process: Slight crop, gradient map adjustment layer with black and white gradient. Clone tool to clean up the leaves on the top and bottom edge. Two passes through Neat Image to remove noise. I’ll get back to color stuff some time…or maybe not. :) Here is the original if you are curious.
This time the grain is natural. I was playing with ISO as the sun was setting at a playground.
More black and white
I am quite fond of black and white lately.
Without grain or With grain?
