One of Two

Post by Bob Yankle » Sun Oct 22, 2017 12:34 am

There are only two historic covered bridges in the state of North Carolina and this is one of them (Bunker Hill Covered Bridge over Lyles Creek in Catawba County). I had just purchased a new Canon SX60 and taken it out for a test drive. As I recall, it was a hazy day and I ended up using On1 Layers and Perfect Effects to replace the sky with one that had some clouds in it ...... before the b&w conversion. I liked the result because the sky has some interesting tones going on up there.

Bob, Great texture and tonal range, as well as an interesting perspective. The photo dances off the page. Well done. Matt

Thank you, Matt. Coming from another b&w advocate, I take that as high praise.

The detail is important here and well exposed. I'd say you have a winner! S-

Wonderful subject well captured and presented Bob. Just for grins add a high pass filter at about 16, then invert it and paint in just the bridge lowering the opacity to taste. You may not like the effect but for me it really separates the bridge....nothing at all wrong with your presentation my suggestion is just a different look. I am envious of this image...

Good suggestion Frank. I think I will let this one stand for now.

I'll echo the other sentiments here. Great image, wonderful textures and a very pleasing overall presentation. :thumbup:

Thank you Duck. I try to keep my hand in monochrome throughout the years.
