    I have stared at this for a few days on and off now, ive lost all sense of judgement about it so thought id post it see what other people thought of it

    Lots of selective focusing in LR a split tone, than another low opacity brown layer added in photoshop ...
    Just a bit of a imagination spillage i suppose

    Yep Me too now :) Often B&W gives something that colour just doesn't, Are we getting too used to having everything in colour do you think, odd question but I still remember z cars in B&W, and love Film Noir I even Paint in B&W at Times.......Perhaps I should post one:)

    I like the B&W one too. It has more instant appeal and concentrates the eye on the geometry of the roof and the areas of focus. But I wouldn't give up on the colour one. It is excellent but I think the sky draws the eye a bit. How about cropping most of the sky out?

    I was going to add that Pete as an option but we are getting a bit of stick for Sq Crop......but I do think it would suit this image either colour or B&W

    Square? ;)

    Yes Kev, post!
    I know what you mean too ... Photography that looks less like real life ticks more of my boxes ...

    I'm set on the original image but in b&w I think
    I'm thinking a series of b&w shots of Worcester might be on the cards!

    Pretty Top stuff Hamish. I quite like the original colour cropped just above the top of the roof access. I like the bottom as I think it makes a nice lead in.

    Avoid the square crop Hamish - it's so... square ;)

    I did want to achive that model look to start with ... sort of inspired by Kevs hobby... but the other way around

    but then i got a bit carried away with the colours etc

    You can get that model look stronger by upping the colours a bit more, but it works better with more of a point of reference and from a higher angle

    How do you do selective focus in LR? I looked but couldn't find such option? :confused:
     
  19. Pete Askew

    I suspect this was done in-camera Jim but you can achieve some control by adding a gradient in LR and using negative sharpness as the control.

    Ah ic, so that's what it means...

    I've never thought of using grad filter in LR that way, good trick! :)

    Thanks Pete.
