About the Image(s)

The image is of Bolton Priory taken earlier this year before lockdown. The ruins are what remains of a 12th century monastery which was closed during the reign of Henry VIII. Rather than sticking to my usual monochrome images I decided to have a play with colour. I made the usual adjustments in Lightroom to the contrast, shadows, highlights, texture and clarity and applied some noise reduction. I then used the channel mixer in Photoshop to colour the image. This resulted in colours that were too saturated for my taste so I adjusted the hue, lightness and saturation in an adjustment layer. Finally I sharpened the image using the high pass filter. I hope all is well with members of the group in these challenging times.
