Placing the emphasis on the ‘Fun’, here’s my entry for Pairs – Pairs of spectacles…

Store display in Selfridges, London. Effect achieved by abusing the curves function in photo processing to give a faux-solarised appearance to the image.

Most people who go shopping on the High Street rarely give a thought to what’s behind the façade. Parades of shops often have service roads – grimy places where deliveries are made and the rubbish collects ready for removal. Here is one such road in North Finchley…

This photo was taken 10 years ago and was one of my early forays into HDR editing. Although I achieved the effect I wanted back then I’d probably do it different now – in fact I’d probably B&W it for starters 😉

This is my entry for Nancy’s Challenge this week.

Definitely not a jam and cream scone with tea 😉 I hope this brings out the dark side of Scone where the
Kings of Scotland were crowned. As anyone who has read Shakespeare and in particular the tale of MacBeth will understand, this remains a place of destiny.

This is a shot where I did most of the work in the camera – deliberately underexposing to bring in the moody sky and using the Fujifilm Acros setting with a simulated red filter. Camera was the X100F and the original exposure was ISO800 f8 at 1/1900th. I then ran the jpeg through the free Nik software to get the effect you see. Please note that Nik is once again not free as google have sold it on so new versions will cost money should you wish to experiment 😦
