We have had a visitor staying with us for the last week or so and it has been busy around here. I thought today you might like to either see this for the first time or see it again. I hope you don’t mind.
Here is something I haven’t done for a while, a before and after of an image I did of the Dunedin Train Station. It is very different.
The Dunedin Train Station is an incredible building. I can’t help thinking, “they don’t make them like that anymore”. Of course, it is true, they really don’t.
When we were there Suzzanna wanted to go back and take photos of it at night. I was up for it, but the weather wasn’t. It rained and that meant we wouldn’t be going out.
In the end, I had to be satisfied with what I had gotten in the morning we went there.
The sun was shining and we really didn’t get the conditions I would have liked. Let’s take a look at what I got.
It is such a stunning building and I wanted to work on at least one. I wasn’t completely happy with it. The composition was okay, but it was pretty boring. The sky was full of clouds, but they were boring too.
So the challenge started. What could I do with this?
The thought crossed my mind if we couldn’t photograph it at night, could I make it look like it was photographed then?
Why not. I like a challenge.
The process took me around 6 hours. It was an interesting process.
Anyway, here is the final image.
You might notice it is a different sky as well.
It isn’t perfect, but it was good fun seeing if it was possible. Perhaps if it hadn’t been sunny it might have worked better. I think it is something I will have to try again in the future.
Challenging yourself is a great thing to do.
I tend not to like doing these sorts of posts as in the past people have always said they like the original more. That just kills me, but thought this would be a good one to show.
