Had literally 5 minutes where I didn’t want to think about work so decided to have a play. No doubt this has been done a million times by a million photographers and has a million slightly different takes. No original though went into this whatsoever.
Technically far from perfect, and could do with more PP but hey – five minutes is five minutes.
At some point I’ll detail what I did but haven’t got time now…….
A wintery morning with not much else to do in Suffolk found us enjoying a somewhat brisk stroll along the beach followed by Tea on the pier. Was surprisingly busy considering the frigid breeze
Been messing around with different editing actions and techniques this week (as you may have noticed). One from the weekend’s visit to Burnham on Crouch, messed with, butchered and murdered in three different ways
First Up, a Dual Colour split tone process
Next – A more traditional black and white conversion, with different crop.
Finally – An ‘Antique’ Tint and vignette – Keep coming back to this one, but not at all sure why it appeals so much.
All of these were taken or more specifically snapped, by a bench by the River Crouch, just along the footpath beyond the sailing club, atop an old pill box thingy at Burnham-on-Crouch.
Was too windy to sit there for long, but gave me another shot to experiment with. Keep going back to the ‘antique’ look at the moment, hopefully it’s just a phase. Otherwise, not sure which of these three works best.
