This afternoon I picked out another shot or two taken with my X100.
One I will just present as previously processed. The one below however is a shot I have not processed at all before and I thought it might have potential as a B&W shot. Here is the original frame with a bit of tweaking. Note that the perspective is a bit skewed.
And this was where I went to in B&W including an attempt to straighten the tower.
But then I thought, why stop there? Go for something more dramatic still. The sky is moodier, storm-like, even though you can see from the original shot that it was a nice bright,sunny day. Much of this melodrama was created simply by playing with the temperature slider.
And if I needed any convincing that I don’t need to upgrade to the X100S, I found this shot, taken on the same day.
So there we are, decision made. No upgrade. With a big thank you to Alister Benn for reminding that it is possible to stop the gear-go-round and work with what you have. Safe travels, Ali.
