Using the Lomo-Effect technique in Photoshop I made this photograph a little more colourful and vibrant. The bricks worked well with the lomography effect, the sky and grungy wooden boards was a good balanced contrast. I would have liked to HDRed the shadows more and reveal the detail.
I was in France at the end of last year and captured some really nice scenery – PhotoStream/France. This is Le Château de Chambord a stunning place, the Chateau is a maze of hallways and rooms filled with unique artefacts from past residents and the architecture of the building is so detailed any where you look :P.
I have been kindly lent a macro lens – Canon Macro lens EFS 60mm 1:2.8 USM – and it is amazing to shot with :) ! I’ve experimented with water-droplets and generally snapping at anything really close-up, here is a ‘Jumping-Spider’ super close-up with the macro lens and slightly cropped.
