Sign of the Cross (Rehab1)

Thank goodness there are a few new prompts/challenges floating about. Check out the tags “#eclectic corner” and “#just thursday” – such fun!

Lucile at bridging lacunas has started a photo101 rehab clinic for us to continue posting a photo a day. Please join in!

So, my photo above. I took this photo while travelling in the Norfolk region in the UK. It was in the seaside town of Hunstanton. A lovely sunny day.

In terms of technique… I’m in love with monochrome and I am interested in using negative space in images because I tend to do a lot of close ups and colourful photos. This particular image wasn’t overly inspiring in colour. I overexposed it slightly to silhouette the cross and bring out the sky. In Lightroom, I converted it to black and white and boosted the contrast and clarity a little. I hope you like it.

Please visit Lucile’s blog and join us 🙂

          1. I know what you mean! It was a bit of a rude awakening when December rolled around. Hubby’s schedule has changed so we can’t do morning photo shoots any more but I’ll do what I can over the next couple of weeks. 🙂

  2. Hi Photoholic! How cool is that? Loved your photo.
    Thanks for joining the ‘clinic’; it’s going to be a fun month. And hopefully we convince the editors to set up photo201 sooner.
    Thanks for the shoutout too! 🙂

              Ok I checked. My post is linked and I can see it in the froggy place. And it won’t let me add it again because it says it’s already linked. 😕

              1. I saw it too. Ops…something wrong….I will see how to fix that and let you know. The same happened to my photo at Justine’s challenge.
                Thanks for checking abd helping me find the error. It would be a pity if it doesn’t work.

                  1. Thanks! You’re sweet. I’m going back and redo the link to see if anything changes. Will check with Justine if she knows of the same and fixed it.

    Thanks goodness for the photo rehab indeed! I love your photo. It is a beautiful complement to Lucile’s black&white shot too. It’s great to learn also what post-editing you used, an excellent idea by Lucile!
