It is interesting how you can process one image in two different ways and give it two completely different looks.
I took the following image of Point Lonsdale Pier at sunrise last year. It wasn’t an especially inspiring one, but it was very early. There really were too many clouds for it to be a good one.
Initially, I thought I would try the image in monochrome and see what I could get.
The water is very light, and seems like there is light on it when it was very dark.
Then I wondered what it would be like if I made it colour again.
It seems almost like this one is a different image and taken later in the morning, but I assure you they are the same image.
In the end I couldn’t decide which one I liked more. I asked my husband which one I should put on Instagram and he said the colour one. I did and people have seemed to like it. I don’t know, which would you choose?
