Old man’s beard
A few weekends ago we decided to take the dogs for a walk at Upnor… we had been there before and took some photographs, but this time we just took one camera and decided to capture a few shots.
Well as we were just about to come home, I saw some old man’s beard blowing in the breeze…
The above photo is straight from the camera, without any developing. As much as I liked the picture with minimum development there was something about it that was not quite right.. Well I tried to enhance it via Lightroom 4 but it still wasn’t turning out how I had envisaged.
For the life of me I couldn’t think what I was doing wrong.. but then I thought to myself, I wonder what it looks like in Black and White… Well that was it.. once I added a couple of gradient filters and a vignette, it started to resemble what I was trying to achieve.
With just a couple more adjustments, that was it.. finished. Hope you enjoy.
