A different view of the Millennium Bridge on the Thames. Taken whilst onboard a Thames Clipper ferry.
File information
Album name:alanuk / A miscellany
Author's Comments:Ooeorr.. another black & white; how did that happen?
Editing Performed:Hue/saturation adjustments. Some dodging of the shadows. Converted to b&W with Silver Efex Pro. No sharpening; I tried it but it made the wires on the handrails too jiggly.

This black and white lark is very contagious Alan! I like the very strong dynamics in this composition, especially with all the GU's advancing into the picture. I'm viewing this on my old laptop here in a rather wet Southsea and I don't think it needs any sharpening Alan but in any case, to sharpen without affecting the wires simply duplicate the layer; sharpen how you want the rest of the image to look then apply a layer mask and 'paint in' where you want the sharpening to show - 'seemples tsch'. Hmm, I think the blown-out white bits in the bottom corners could do with a touch of the Clone brush magic as well. A smashing image nonetheless Alan and well spotted!

No don't sharpen it Alan, it's a smasher as is.
In fact is a cracker of a shot, I just love everything about this,the textures are gorgeous, well done Sir.

Good shot from an interesting angle and works well in B&W, well spotted and taken

Simple but very effective, tricky lighting I would guess, from the bright sky to the underside of the bridge, but it's worked well.
Fortunate too that most of the faces of the GUs are away from the camera, gives the impression of informality.
Genuinely well seen and taken.

Thanks, guys. As I've said in the past, I don't find it particularly easy doing b&w as I think it's less tolerant of errors (ie sloppy photography and/or editing ) so I've very pleased when it works out to your liking.

Keith: Good point about the white clouds in the bottom corners. I briefly thought about it during the edit but then immediately forgot all about it

This image works very well in mono, there are a very good range of tones, very good contrast, very good detail and the composition is attractive. Very well taken and edited Alan

Keep coming back to look at this one Alan, luv it.
