Monochrome Wednesday – Princes Pier again

So this morning I got up early and headed out to Princes Pier again and thought one of the photos from it would be good for Monochrome Wednesday. Okay, maybe I was hoping one of them would be good.

It turned out that a few would have been fine, but I’ve only done one here.

It was a great morning down there, and I don’t want to talk about it too much as I have done a video for you. A few people have said to me that I should do more videos, so I thought it might be nice to do one reviewing the photos that I took this morning.

When I got home and loaded the photos up I set up the video to start recording the screen. As we go through the photos it is the first time I am seeing them as well. I wanted to share with you what I think worked, what didn’t and why I was taking the images. I might have got a little distracted, you never know.

Here is the video.

Don’t forget you can subscribe to my YouTube channel. I am going to be doing a lot more of this and other things.

Today’s Monochrome Wednesday Image

The image I choose to convert was taken this morning. It is very fresh. I think when you go to a place like this and the colours are quite muted it lends itself really well to monochrome.

A tone was added to the image, however not the tone I thought I would add. In my head, I thought I would do a blue one, but in the end, I just copied the one from last week. It is becoming my favourite tone.

Shall we take a look?

In the video, I think I said something about cropping it and I did do that. Not a lot, but just enough to bring the horizon up a little. This image didn’t need so much sky.

The final image is probably a lot darker than you would expect, but that is my style I think. I love playing with light in images. Seeing how far I can push it. Doesn’t always work, but I’m okay with this one.

Joining in

It would be great if you would like to participate, especially if you enjoy the monochrome images. If you want to contribute there is a Facebook groupTPM Photos which you can join and share your images. Of course, if you are blogging no reason why you can’t post your own. I like this challenge and it is nice to be thinking in monochrome again.

    love it 🙂 what time is best to be there?

    • Thank you Roselyn. I don’t know that there is a bad time to be there. I love early mornings, but sunset is pretty amazing. Though you will find lots of people there then.
