Just got back from a great London night shoot with my new toy a Nikon D800, but had to stop shooting as my battery ran out. Was supposed to be 5 or 6 of us but I ended up shooting on my own. I only have one FX lens a 50mm prime.. so expect to see lots of 50mm shots during the next few weeks
Im used to doing these selective colour type effect the manual way in Photoshop where you just brush in by hand with layers. It’s very boring that way and tricky getting it right. While playing with OnOne Phototools 2.6 I came across this effect that I’d not seen before. It’s a little hit and miss as you need bold colours it can pick up easily but the skin/people option worked really well for this photo and so easy!
Here is a photo of the Millenium bridge during the daytime from my last visit. Such a nice day last time I was in town only problem was the huge crowds that also thought the same.
Another shot of Tower Bridge at slight different angle but I really like how this one came out with new and old together. Processed with Color Efex pro to give it that wet and glossy look.
