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.
