Photo Outing on a Dull Day

I've been anxious to get out with the camera, but as I have said recently, conditions aren't the best. On Friday, I headed to the little bridge (which you can't see in these photos) and the almost adjacent new pedestrian (old railway) bridge (which you can see in the first photo below).

It was so dull and flat out that I knew the photo ops would be limited, but I looked for little shots that didn't depend on the weather very much. Even then, I knew that they would require more than usual fiddling in post to be at all interesting.

I shot this from the little bridge looking toward the pedestrian bridge concentrating on the rush of water by the foundation. I applied brightness and saturation in post to make it mildly more appealing.

From the access to the bridge above, I fired off a shot of the the roof of the adjacent abandoned building with a pigeon on the chimney. I converted it to b&w among other adjustments. Mono can be a good way to go when the colour is poor.

I also took a photo of the other wall of the same building trying to bring out the texture. I have both mono and colour versions. Take your pick.

Finally, a shot of the water rushing around the base base of one of the foundational pllars of the railway bridge from the bridge itself. With much artistic licence applied.

In normal times, I would likely not have bothered trying these photos, but it was a long winter.

Love the colour shot of the building front.

It's wonderful getting back into the not-frozen forest, here! I like the B & W photograph. I don't do it much, myself. I should play around.

The water seems rough!

The photographs of the bricked building facade looks good. Both colors and mono. The texture of the wood looks great in color one.
