Abbey Ruins and a Bench - Almost Mono


Photo Information
Another take on a shot of Roche Abbey uploaded yesterday. This location demands something different and more unusual with the PP treatment, so I've had a go.

This is not a mono conversion, I have selectively de-saturated various colour elements of the image whilst retaining others. I've then done a bit of work with layers to produce the final image.

Thanks Nuri, I will have to ask her! The only problem is the site is now closed and fenced off (all the images I've shot have been from behind the boundary fence). In the Summer months it does not have the same 'atmosphere' and there are too many people around!

The pink-ish tint rather makes it! Dress her in red!!

Nice treatment and effect David. For some reason though - I keep being drawn to the left of the shot to the extent that I am almost leaning that way trying to see it from a lightly different angle.

No matter how many lenses I have owned - I have always needed just one more

Much better than the other version.
After Carl comment, I had another look I agree with him - it would be interesting to see how it looks with the bench in the middle.

Haha - I didn't mean it that way David, only that if you moved a little to the left, the bench will appear towards the middle!
Kind regards.

Thanks Naim, I knew what you meant and you are probably right!
