For today’s post I picked another photo that I took with the Nikon 5100 on Sunday of the Ivanhoe Town Hall. I was so disappointed with how the sky turned out in the photos. When I was looking through them, there was one that I thought wouldn’t be such a bad image if the sky were better. It has been overcast and rainy here today, so I took the 5100 outside and took some photos of some clouds. I picked one image and replaced the sky.
The original is there on the left. It’s really washed out and I really don’t like the sky in it. The clouds and the processing have improved the image so much. A lot more mood has been put into the image. The darkening of the bricks has helped give the outside of the building more depth.
Of course, I couldn’t just leave it at that. With the Nik Software, you know I had to try the image in Color Efex.
So after using Color Efex, I had to see how the image would look processed with Silver Efex.
The other day when I did the post on the images from the back beach, someone suggested using the soft focus on the black and white image, so today I decided to try that.
Doing the images in different ways can be a great thing, but then it becomes harder to work out which one you like the best.
I had hoped that I would be able to get out with the Nikon 5100 today to get some photos, but the weather wasn’t suitable as we had thunderstorms and rain this morning. I am planning some trips this weekend to really try it out. Though, I am going to try some still life images this week with some dead roses I have.
