Default Colour blind: High, cold flames?




In PSP, converted to greyscale, then gamma set to 0.45 and 'midtones expand' to -13 (i.e., applied a steep S-curve). This is the sort of thing people used to do with red filters

BTW, can I lay out text or images within this editor, i.e, how could I put two images next to each other (other than by posting one bigger image)?

Here's another: Gamma 0.6, midtone expansion -23. I tried playing with the red channel, but couldn't get anything to look right.

I really like that, and its worked really well in my opinion. So breaking the rule of thirds is a good thing at time I guess? Well done...

B&W is awesome!!!

"Moody Bluesesque" it is...

"Blasting, billowing, bursting forth..."

Your photo emphatically implies there is some wild weather
just over the hill and beckons this viewer to want to walk
to the top of the hill.

Kudos!!!

That is one fine example of how much more dramatic b&w can be. Superb. I'm going to have to do some work with sky and cloud.

It's called a rule, but it isn't really. It's one of a number of guidelines for composition, all of which can be ignored when something else works better.

That one really worrks out well in B&W, looks almost like a b&w taken with an orange or red filter.

Looks good, Alan, really good! Although your cold flames reference is fitting, it makes me think of spirits in the sky.
