Bejeweled in Brick
Camera: K-x 
Posted By: nate_b, 12-20-2009, 07:09 PM

I came across this building on a walk through the University of Colorado campus in Boulder. While not all that compelling structurally, I found the brickwork exquisite; the varied and contrasting tones giving the building an almost bejeweled appearance. I tried to bring this out with my B&W conversion, but am not completely satisfied with the resultant image. It was shot under very harsh lighting conditions, and that certainly posed a challenge with my limited post processing skills. Honest thoughts on the conversion would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

If you can,try the same shot again later in the afternoon and leave it colour.This may give the image a warmer feel to it.But never the less,a good try with this pic!

Thanks for the reply and suggestions, Barnster. I do think both shooting under better lighting conditions and going with color would result in a better and warmer image. As is, it's certainly a bit cold and dull. I'd like to take a crack at it, but don't think I'll be back to Colorado....let alone the CU campus anytime soon. Despite my pp efforts, I don't think I can quite make this one work.

Thanks again, Barnster.

I'll be down in that area next month on a more permanent basis, I'll see if I can get over that way and post it from a different prospective. Next time you are down that way shoot me a PM,

John
