On Monday I had to go to London for a meeting ( for the day job) and found I had a little time to spare on the walk between Charing Cross station and Cockspur St where I was headed. The walk itself was very short and took me across Trafalgar Square where I decided to look for inspiration. When I got home I decided to spend some time experimenting with processing - see the results below!
First of all a non processed picture (I'm not counting auto enhance which I usually try but don't always keep) featuring a giant orange which was suspended by a crane and appeared to be advertising an orange drink - it looked a lot better when you couldn't see the crane - like a huge orange sun!
I then moved on to the Fourth Plinth (it doesn't have a permanent inhabitant, rather a changing installation) which currently has a giant ship in a bottle on top of it - I tried taking it from a number of different angles but I think these were the best - I have also included info from and about the artist.
On my way back to the station in the afternoon I was struck by the view of these classic buildings with the millennium wheel poking over the top - when I got home I decided to process it using an antique finish - I rather like the result as it looks like an old photo initially and then you are taken by surprise when you notice the wheel!
Finally I took a picture of St Martin in the Fields filtered through a tree and am including the non- processed colour picture as well as the one processed for contrast & sharpness and turned black & white - I would be interested in feedback re which one you like best.
