Flotsam & Jetsam
Got a bit bored with the landscape stuff so I needed a change of pace and these two images fit the bill. I am guessing I took these at low tide which is why I could see at much stuff as I did so I just aimed the camera towards the various bits and pieces that are on the shower when the water is low.
I knew when I took these images they were going to be monochrome. I know it’s weird saying that because you are looking at something in color but you shoot for light and shadows. I also knew that the monochrome conversion would really bring out the details and that is what these images.
Interesting fact is I edited these photos in colors. I then brought them into Photoshop and added a low key tone curve. Then when I used Tonality CK to do the monochrome conversion it shifted more towards high key and I got the effect I was looking for. Then it was dodge and burn time to get the light where I wanted it in the image. There is a slight difference between the version here and the full resolution is that there is a two stage sharpening applied to get the image to bite a bit more.
