Work Will Set You Free

By FoolsAndKings
Part 1 of a set of 2 from Auschwitz Camp in Poland.

A common photo from the camp, but normally there is less foliage on the trees, so the wording stands out better.
Also with all the groups of people I took it above their heads so not to get any unwanted distractions.

All the images have been altered from the original using just 4 clicks in ThumbsPlus 7.

As mentioned before not a great lover of the idea of PS, but I may yet be converted when I find the time to see what can be achieved. ThumbsPlus is what I use to resize and catalogue my pictures. It has a few basic tweeks, but when used together can give a much better image.

All pictures were originally colour.

Here are the four clicks

Saturation to 0
Lightness -25
Contrast +25
Shift and Q to Equalize Channels

These will be thought provoking. Words we all understand and know on the sign, aren't they! Absolutely necessary in b&w.

An image best suited to mono. Very well captured and always thought provoking.

Looks like there is a bit more in this, if you dont mind people having a crack at your images, stick one up as a modable and we can see whats in there and convert you to the holy church of the sacred Photoshop, amen.

Thanks for the great comments.

Not sure if I can do as a MOD with not being a member. If I can I will do. AMEN

Interesting angle... although I like it, I think I would have prefered the whole scene... but maybe there was a reason for cropping it higher up.

Like it. It's on my visit list for 2008.
Cheers, Ken
