A Splash of Light

This was the view from my hotel room in Portland, Oregon. It really never changed, it was constantly grey and cloudy while I was there. I did like how the last little bit of light was hitting the building and contrasted with the rest of the stuff in the image.

I have edited a few of the Portland images and since there was very little light to work with I have been going monochrome. I think it brings out the sky and gives the image drama. I have been using Tonality CK to do the conversions and then bring them back into Photoshop to dodge and burn the bits I want for local contrast.

Enjoy.

  1. It appears that the clouds and rain followed you to Portland from Maryland. The sky is grey and I am surprised there is a ray of sunshine peeping through on the building. I am not a fan of black and white, even on a cloudy day. I do hope you have place some of the photos in color.
