Good morning everyone! Today’s post will have a bit of variety in it. I was going through some old shots and noticed that I never processed a night that I spent shooting the skyline of Pittsburgh back in December. After going through my normal HDR process I thought that I would give one of them a more classic look with a B&W process. It seems that I sometimes just go on streaks with my B&W processing, and this was one of those times, as I processed the other two the same way with Silver Efex 2. Not being sure which version of each shot that I liked the best, I thought that I would just share all of them!
The first view (pictured above) is from the North Shore of Pittsburgh, an area that I’ve shot many, many times. You can tell that this is a few weeks before Christmas as the tree at the Point in Pittsburgh is still all lit up! My favorite part of this scene is how you can see the shadows from the tree branch reflecting on the water right in the middle of the frame.
The next four, pictured above, were all taken from the West End Overlook. The first one of the second set, the closer crop of the city in B&W, I think is my favorite of all of the images. There is just something about this view in B&W that is just really classy. I love the way that you can see the streaks from the river current as well.
That’s all for today folks. Thanks for stopping by!
