This week sees a continuation of the monochromatic trend of late, but instead of just a straight BW, I went for a sepia with a vignette. It was on one of those walks with Nikhil, while looking for his Photo for his 365, and even though these waterways have been done, and over-done, I thought I’d give it a try, with the over-cast sky and perpetuating gloom of the afternoon this was pre-destined to be a monochromatic photograph.
After minimal processing in Lightroom, I did the monochromatic rendition in Nik Silver Efex, it came out rather nicely.

Beautiful. Looks like another dark day.
overcast is the norm in GT these days 🙂
I love the old fashioned daguerreotype feel you get from this processing. Its perfect for the scene. Tight week again and another one next week too. We are going to have to make a special effort the following week to get some good stuff for Christmas.
Lovely reflection and, the softness around the edges adds a great touch.
thanks Nigel, I think it really added to the photo!
Good one. Lovely symmetry and has an artsy look.
Thanks Sasi, good of you to stop by, and I like the artsy look too 🙂
Thanks Kojo, good to have your vote 🙂
I like it, the reflections are great.
Thanks, the afternoon light made it better I think 🙂
Hi Michael, love the ye olde feel to this one. I never think of a white vignette.
Thanks David, I more often choose a darker vignette myself, the lighter type worked well in this instance 🙂
Very nice Michael. I love that antique feel. I just received a present of Photoshop CS5 and have just started to figure it out. I plan on trying the HDR there first.
Thanks Ron, CS has a very subtle way of dealing with HDRs, very nice and simple. Have fun with it!
