A few black and white experiments

In the same picture series as for the previous posts, some of the shots were not really convincing on the colour side of things… But for a few of them that showed nice geometrical patterns, I decided that I would try to convert them into black and white.

The first results of the convertion are the following:

Un toit à Saint-Malo

A roof at Saint-Malo

Un rayonnement du passé

A beam from the past

Technically, nothing impressive is involved :

  • a mix between Red/Green/Blue chanels performed from the RAW file (with UFRaw)
  • some tweaking on the contrast as well
  • small sharpness enhancement
  • a quick framing

Of course there is much more information about this on a MeetTheGimp podcast.
