Here is another photograph I have revisited and given a new look and feel thanks to post-processing in Lightroom.
This is a street scene from St Paul’s in London but it wasn’t particularly dynamic or exciting.
I believe the day was grey and flat so I have converted the shot to black and white.
It also some distracting objects around the edges which I have cropped out to focus on the boys having their school lunch (I know they look like old boys but the boys at City of London School are teenagers).
I think the placement of the people is rather energetic but they are flanked by the Dome of St Paul’s that adds plenty of drama.
I boosted the contrast and played with the highlights to give the photograph more character and I like the finished results.
I took this shot this time last year with the Fujifilm X70 (which I sold a while ago). It was a very crisp camera and you can see there is a lot of detail in the final shot.
Remember, never delete your images, you never know what gems are lurking in your albums!
