Thanks for your kind comments. Appreciated.

 

The goal of this image was to emphasise the GR so that it pops out. Didn't quite happen like that, but then a tram arrived, so the purpose changed somewhat. :D

 

Nice one! I never get those tones. Any hints?

 

 

DrM - I generally make dark images, but use the curves tool to bring back the level of highlights I desire.

 

As for the colour tone, make the image dark & sepia and desaturate to your preferred level and modify the contrast to finish.

 

Hope that helps.

Another well observed and excellently captured study. You are inspiring me to consider how I can exploit the urban work I do with a b&w eye rather than a colour one.

Stuart, Louis - many thanks for your kind comments.

 

Louis, I can solve that mystery for you easily.

 

Use your M8 to capture the images. If they don't work 100% in colour, work bloody hard to do a credible conversion into monochrome. :D

 

There is of course another more expedient way. ;)

You do realise that I'm now going to have to walk every mile of the tram track until I find this?

But not in Rastaland, Owdham or Blackers. I reckon not too far from t'dilly.

 

Pete,

Presume you like the image, as you have commented positively yet. :rolleyes:

 

There are no secrets between M users. Have you got your MP yet ? :)

 

Walk the tram track by all means, but keep your eyes and ears open. You'll find a piece of pink gum that acts as a marker. :D Ask Falstaff, he can't contain his excitement. :D

 

We'll be out there this weekend, so you might bump into us.

Yes, very nice image. No M, no money.

I'm working this week-end in Manchester, give me a shout if you are around, I could possibly sneak an hour off off between machine lifts.
