I don’t normally do this, but I was so impressed with how this image turned out in Black and White, I had to show it first.  So now I will go back to showing the original image.

There isn’t that much wrong with this.  The sky is probably too blue and the rocks, in some places, are too yellow.  This image was first processed back in April after a trip to Sorrento back beach.  Some great images were taken, but when I was going through them, this is the one that stood out; begging to be reworked.

There isn’t a lot of difference between the two images, but I hope this one is more natural, the sky and the rocks aren’t so saturated.  This one is much better, to my eye anyway.

This one has had a filter applied to it from Color Efex.  I usually use the Classical Soft Focus, but this time I tried a different one, I applied the Sunlight filter.  It has created a nice softness to the rocks.

Out of all though, the first one is probably the best, in my opinion. It certainly has the most drama, and we can thank Silver Efex for that.  I used low key for it and did a few more adjustments.

I am in the middle of big job.  I have to go to BMX racing the next couple of days.  Not for long each day, but I have to be there.  I have been given a job to photograph the girls and women racing BMX.  It is a great job and so nice that they want photos of the girls. If you didn’t know better you would think that only boys raced, but there are lots of girls there.  It should be a great couple of days, but also tiring.
