Liver Building

By mickp
Not sure which category to put this so I went for B/W. First attempt at making a mono print from colour. The original sky was very dull so I played around to get the stormy effect. Comments welcomed

Sky lends a sense of drama. Good shot. Nick.

This is a good shot of the builing and you seem to have selected it quite well but I am not sure what happened on the tower to the right of the dome. I can however see it is Photoshop clouds. May I respectfully suggest that you take lots of pictures of different skies and build up a bank of them for situations just like this. That way you can make it look much more realistic.

I think this shot works well. I like the good use of BW and strong contrasts. I can see what Dionne means about the clouds, but presented like this gives a surreal edge to the image.

Thanks for the comments.
To answer your question Dionne I hadn't noticed the tower on the right hand side. When I looked at the origianl it is purely down to my dodgy 'doging' technique. This was my first attempt and I throughly agree with your comment about the clouds. Will now have to learn to take sky shots and get them into Photoshop. Appreciate your input to my shots. You certainly have an eye for detail.

Having you tried used the Black and white mode in the camera and a red filter on the lens to black up the sky and white out the clouds?
