photoblog image Clock Tower Morecambe Promenade

Clock Tower Morecambe Promenade

 

On the seafront at Morecambe. I thought I would give the toning capabilities of Adobe Lightroom a try rather than do it all in Photoshop. They seem to work quite well, plenty of control over both the tones and the greyscale conversion.

Nice old clock tower, not as ornate as some of them. The tones are a bit washed out on my monitor but it has never been calibrated.
Les Auld: Thanks Aussie, the washed out tones were deliberate as I feel I am going through just such a phase.

Lovely tower and composition - the two cocks are not synchronised smile Must have a look at Lightroom if such good results can be had.
Les Auld: Thanks Louis, Lightroom is ok for this sort of work and then you can import it into Photoshop for the finishing touches.

You know I'm loving this, Les. It's a fabulous clock tower and I like how you've converted it to B&W!
Les Auld: Thanks Ginnie, glad you like it, it actually looks quite mundane in colour, the toning has brought out the details.

I like this, it's a good capture, and shooting upwards too.

I wonder who's meant to keep the clocks synchronised? wink

Could you tell me more about Lightroom please.
Les Auld: Thanks Ellie, Lightroom is a new product from Adobe that is a digital workflow tool which can import photos from cameras, edit them (Although not as fully featured as Photoshop) creat web pages and much more. details can be found here.

I've got some pictures of this somewhere Les. As I recall it's red bricked Victorian. Your treatment works well.
Les Auld: Thanks Bill, mundane Victorian Clock Tower, just looks better in monochrome.
Yes, I agree with you. Lightroom works very well with the levels. I cannot use it normally because she takes many resources from the system and she blocks it! Some solution for that?
Les Auld: Looks like you need a bit more power Jose, thanks for the comment.
