Signs

 Thursday, June 9, 2011

Twisted Fate's photography challenge this week is "signs." This is a fairly old picture from my trip to Paris, but it came to mind when I thought of "signs."

And for Pixel Perfect's "before and after" blog hop, here is the SOOC version.  To me this is an example how a "just ok" picture can be made really dramatic in black and white. I slightly rotated and cropped it, to straighten it a bit, and I ran Pioneer Woman's Black and White action and adjusted the layers to taste.
