By Fefe
Thankyou to everyone for comments on yesterdays upload "The Tardis by the Town Hall" Grin

Todays shot is the Town Hall again from a different angle, Different day to the other uploads too. I think parts of the sky are too bright and I have tried to get rid of this....................
No ....... It is not going awayTongue, I will say I have gone for the drama insteadWink
Oh......... I have done a bit of cloning again, but I am not saying whereWink Let me know if you spot itGrin

I think the cloning is on the bottom left of the building where the balustrade is . A cracking shot of an imposing building .

Strong exagerated perspective and the mono makes it look very imposing.

I'll use Dave's opt-out. Smile Love the POV and the mono conversion though. It's a very striking image indeed.

Barry
Great architecture and this type of image works well in mono. Great pov. As you say the sky is a little over exposed. You may have been able to rectify this if you had shot in RAW. Only a suggestion for the future.

Must agree with Steve on this, shooting in Raw mode gives far more latitude to alter exposures like this, In camera raw you could get one exposure for shadows then save and one for the bright areas then save, then blend them together for a good exposed capture, but if you can get it right in camera it saves on the processing afterwards, just watch the Histogram after the exposure Diane.

Hi Diane sorry to be so techy, go to Google and type in histogram, this will give you the understanding of this fantastic tool, print out for your records, then type in Raw Processing and again print and keep to build up your library, there should also be a section in your instruction book, why not also join a camera club or council run course, in our area they run one for digital for beginners.

A good choice of subject for the b&w conversion, Diane.
With a good mixed sky like this - clouds and blue bits, and a partially sun-lit dramatic building, adding a red filter after converting to b&w can make that sky even more dramatic.
Cloning? Easy..the green tardis above and to the right of the towerWink

Wonderfully dramatic capture. Great pov giving a real sense of towering height. Works very well in mono.

Good range of tones here which makes for a good mono. I tend to shoot all my pics in RAW as Steve and Trev say it gives you a chance to alter and it keeps more information in your image. I have learnt some basics with Photoshop elements and find the processing afterwards on the computer to be a skill in itself and quite interesting. Give it a go its a learning curve and another 'string to your bow'. But having said all that I really like this shot. On the tower one clockface is in shadow and the other in sun but you've the exposure balance right. Congrats. Paul
