One Photo Focus where a group of people edit the same image and this month is MY PHOTO taken in Melbourne 2010 when I was there for Worldcon Science Fiction Convention. This lovely ship was moored outside, how could I resist taking a photo?
I am a bit late to the party, ironically, its my second week back at work after time off recovering from surgery and I have been more tired than I expected to and COMPLETELY FORGOT about the challenge!
Anyway I got stuck into Lightroom and it totally needed to be converted to monochrome. Tweaked the usual settings in LR, applied an ND Grad over the sky and bought the exposure way down. Move to the BW palette, tweaked those settings and then I applied a few different BW Presets til I found some that I liked. This was all done in LR, no other software was used.
Here is a sepia version as well.
My focus on processing this image was to add some drama and texture to the sky, as it was quite blah other wise. Also to highlight all the complex lines and shapes made by the masts and the lines (ropes) hanging off them.

For those who participated, I look forward to seeing your unique creative vision of my photo, its quite exciting!
