These are incredible! I know nothing of the art of photography but I know a black and white photo is compelling. Of course now I would respectfully ask that you give us some information about your subject.
I'll have to look it up. But I believe it's a part of the Butler estate, Earl of Glengall. B&W changes how we prioritise an image.
Well, that is rather great, isn't it. Why do "they" plop lights and poles and whatnot down in front of beautiful old things. I suspect it's to RUIN OUR PICTURES. It took me a moment (like those pictures that used to appear in children's magazines) to figure out what was different, and that's because the removal is quite good. I can't really tell where they were removed. Is this with PS?
The only edit I did badly wrong was the ladder. And that was solely my fault in using the wrong tool and then having to fix it with another. But that's part of the learning I feel.Nor is it an edit that's fundamentally changing things, not that I'm that fussed about that like some, but I'm of a mind to edit to a style of only when necessary.Why the ladder; it just seemed out of context.And mostly Ps. All the street furniture and the first edit of the ladder. I couldn't find the 'total un-do' Ctrl Z, would only bring me back one step. Thrump eh.
Not sure if it's the same on yours, but under the edit "tab" you should be able to undo quite a lot of actions. I'm not quite sure why the ctrl z didn't work though? On the mac I do cmd z and it undid a series of actions. But try the edit button. It's easy to get yourself into a black hole of sorts trying to "fix" something and just making it worse, isn't it?What "Trump eh" are you referring to? There are so many smh moments, I have no idea which one you are asking about. :) Or is it just a general wtf? Do "you all" think the US has completely lost its mind? MORTIFYING. It makes me sick to my stomach.
I always enjoyed those "find the differences" photos Kimberly mentioned and that's exactly what I've done here. It's a great subject for you to play around with. Well done!
I'm a purist and don't alter my photos in any way other than cropping on occasion. But there have been many a time when I have passed on taking a photo just because of something like a light post in the way. I suppose if I had the software and the ability to do a job like what you did above, I would reconsider my purist instincts.
