Gothic quarter, Barcelona – Part 4

I have processed the following picture in both colour and black-and-white. I believe both iterations of the same picture are equally good and offer a different view of the same scene. The picture is of the building that houses the remains of the Roman columns of the Temple of Augustus. The building that surrounds the columns is a regular block of flats, which in itself is very surprising!

Gothic Quarter, Barcelona – Part 2

The gothic quarter of Barcelona (or Barri Gotic in Catalan) is the oldest part of Barcelona. It is a labyrinth of small alleys and winding streets offering excellent opportunities for photography. The gothic quarter dates back to the roman times and beyond and retains a charming character. I didn’t have anything else but my iPhone for this trip and these pictures are a result of post-processing in a custom workflow in NIK software.
