I experimented with pictures I took of the M25/A30 Runnymead bridge over the Thames using black-and-white conversion. The first two pictures are roughly from the same viewpoint and one of these is an exact copy of the earlier post.
Few places in the UK now seem free of people littering the place with graffiti and other detritus of modern living. The base of the bridge was littered with broken beer bottles and other unsavoury items, that destroyed an otherwise interesting scene of nature and modernity co-existing at this place. The Thames itself was tranquil and sedately flowed towards London en route to the sea towards the right of the pictures.
I used Adobe Photoshop Lightroom to process these images that came from my iPhone. I used the Black-and-White Strong Tonal Contrast Preset by Matt Kloskowski as a starting point before applying blue and green filter corrections to the images.
I hope you like the effects and I would love to hear your comments and suggestions..
