Default Color Blind - Old Machinery

Color


In PSE 2
Created new background layer, used multiply in blending and flattened, then went to greyscale. Used oval selection tool and adjusted contrast, feathered to 55. Used blur, darken around outer edge, added frame and changed light direction on frame.

I agree - I liked the design in the original photo (from last week, I believe) but MUCH prefer the black and white. We're not distracted from the nice lines with the color.

What's really interesting here is that it's as if we're seeing two entirely different photos, the idea behind each being the difference. In color, it's the idea of age that's emphasized; in b&w, it's the idea of abstract design.

Being able to convert photos means we have the option to change emphasis. If digital has given us nothing else (and it's given us a lot), it's expanded the possibilities.

Default B&W

I like both images but the B&W version has something about it, I just like.

Nice Job,

Rod
