What can be done to this one

Postby Ganna » Sun Sep 18, 2016 7:30 am

This is a panorama of 3 images stitched together in Lightroom. I just cropped it minimally and converted to jpeg from RAW. No other editing was done. Was an overcast day with very flat light. Can it be saved?

I don't know about "saving", but...

(As usual, Art and I have gone in opposite directions, from otherworldly to post-apocalyptic :D )

This is beautifully composed, Martin, and yes, what an amazing-looking place!

You did ask what can be done to it, not necessarily what can be done to it to make it more acceptable to photo clubs around the world... :D

...or is this one better? (slight colour difference)

Hi
I think mine are pretty tame compared to what has already been done
I have not spent a lot of time on these as Paris images are calling.
One I have tried to make soft and dreamy, one a pretty straight edit and one in black and white

Martin and Julie, how do you do the b/w conversion? Does which technique you choose depend on some of the qualities of the original colour version?
