Street/ 25

When I took this photograph as a colour transparency, I didn’t rate it – too much dark shadow. Nearly a decade later, I have just come across it again during sorting…and seen it’s potential for a B&W conversion.

All that lovely negative space, and the drama of those two figures….. Thank you, Silver Efex!

Sinister?

  1. This could be a still from an old film Sue. Excellent composition, and full of atmosphere. First rate!
    Best wishes, Pete.

      Thanks, Pete! Just goes to show, never throw anything away! Well, I am chucking stuff away now, as I shan’t have the space – but hope I’ve kept the important stuff……

  2. it looks great in B&W, Sue. I have never heard of Silver Efex so I looked it up. Which version do you use? Is it worth it, compared to other B&W programs?
    I’m cleaning up and out too and away it too, so that makes two of us . 🙂
    Have a wonderful day,
    Dina

  3. It’s created a very mysterious image, cool!

  4. This works very well. Love the steps leading out of the shadow into the sunlight and all the curves which contrast nicely with the straight lines. Great composition Sue. It must be taking you a looong time to clear out if you keep stopping to play with the odd photo or two… 😀

      Teehee…. I have to have frequent breaks, so I do sidetrack! I have been very slowly sorting over the last year, along with other life events. But I have just finished a stint with a friend, and she saŷs she can see the end in sight!

  5. Yes, there are some things that i have set aside and returned to that worked with a new technique or as in your case B&W – which is why I never get rid of images…Glad this one was reworked Sue.

  7. great contrast, light and texture. Great shot

    It does look like a film still. Very atmospheric and dramatic.

  9. Sinister, yes, and beautiful.

  10. Superb framing of an amazing shot. And thanks for the technical info. I’ve stored it for future leisure.

  11. This is beautiful Sue – fabulous tonal relationships.

    • Sue

      I played about with different settings in Silver Efex – I always start with a preset, and then adjust the settings to my liking to get the right tones….. Glad you like!

  12. A perfect shot for monochrome Sue, all those lovely dark areas and the curves and straights, love it!

  13. perfect contrasts and composition! Like a scene from an old movie!

    • Sue

      That’s what appealed about this place, I took a number of shots (in the days of film), but this one had the people in the right position!

  14. What a great rediscovery.

  15. Very nice! I love the composition and those figures in it.

  16. One of your best photos if i might say! 😀 Everything is perfect…the light, the framing, the placement of every element in the frame… Well done Sue! I absolutely love it!
