Re: Widows and pipes

That's a strong, geometric image Alf. I like it. From the thread title I was expecting it to be something to do with Scottish Widows. Maybe that sultry lady in a black, hooded cape.

Re: Widows and pipes

A well spotted opportunity, beautifully photographed. I do like this type of subject, especially when it is done as well as this.

By the way, I've corrected the typo in the title.

The front of this was a fancy shopping street.

Re: Windows and pipes

Well this is a far as I was going with the colour version in terms of comments I recieved elsewhere to increase the contrast/vibrancy

Here is a mono version

Re: Windows and pipes

I like the B&W version, it works well too, but the colour version with increased contrast and vibrancy completely alters the mood - and not in a good way. It looks over processed. I still prefer the original.

Re: Windows and pipes

B&W is no where near as depressing as the colour version which is what I assume you were aiming for (and achieving).
