About the Image(s)

The petrol pumps are about 1 mile from my house and I have always meant to photograph them. This was my first attempt.

The image was taken on a Nikon D750 at 16mm with a polarizer. I used Lightroom and Nik Colour Effects to process the image. In Lightroom I brought back the highlights slightly and in Nik Colour effects I extracted some detail and changed the local contrast and finally in Lightroom I checked the highlights and it was a straight conversion from Colour to Mono.

This round’s discussion is now closed!

I think the image as is really shows the effects of our disposable society. The dark sky and structure add to the effect. I did try one edit where I lightened the scene to some degree and made the pump look somewhat more weathered. I did try this just to see what the effect would be. The edit was done in Silver Efex and very slight adjustment to the sharpening in Topaz.   Posted: 05/06/2023 11:48:59

I really like the darkness and grunge of the pump. But I would like to see those clouds above the roof lightened up just a tiny bit - not as light as the pump, but just enough to show them off.   Posted: 05/07/2023 22:14:54
