Monochrome Madness Week 50


After about three weeks absence I finally have a black and white photo for MM50.  Its not my finest photo that’s for sure but I felt I needed to get back into the fold.

This weeks image came from a recent trip down the scenic rim.  We stopped for a nice picnic lunch at the Border Loop lookout on the Queensland/NSW border.  Its a lookout that scans the beautiful ranges but also a railway line (apparently there are only two in Australia) that employs a loop system to get the train up a steep gradient.

When I stepped back from the lookout I saw a lovely mossy tree trunk looking out towards the view.  Unfortunately I had overcompensated light from a previous photo shoot and didn’t realise I had left it that way.  I however corrected it in Lighroom marginally but still it now has a grey look.

As it wasn’t my finest photo I decided to use a filter and in Photoshop I selected the oil painting one which is a favourite of mine.  Not sure about the effect but  here it is nonetheless.
