Millennium

It was a hard decision what to post for today’s blog.

This image is of the Millennium bridge in London with, as you can see, a few people doing their thing on it. It was taken during a non-eventful sunset, but I converted to black and white and then used the curve tool to blow out the whites and darken the shadows to be left with this silhouette.

I felt that this image was quite compelling, so chose to process a couple of other scenes in the same way, before turning them all into a triptych. This is where the hard decision came in; I wasn’t sure if I preferred this single image or the triptych itself. In the end the solo won.

Here are the other two images that make it up, along with the triptych itself.

Which do you prefer?
