Photography is an endless learning process. A different processing technique, different light settings, different composition, I just seem to learn something new every week. Sometimes it’s not something new but a different inspiration, a different vision.
This is why, I very often go back through my archives, browse through my Lightroom catalog and rework on older photos with a different perspective.
I decided to check out some of the photos of the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque I took in Abu Dhabi, UAE a year ago. Since it was shot in midday and most dominant colors were the white of the marble and the deep blue of the sky, I decided to try a black and white conversion, bringing up details and enhancing the contrast between light and shadow.
After a few hours of work, I was very pleased with the results, my favorite being the one featured above. Hope you enjoy them as much as I did working on them (click on the photos for a larger preview).
So which one is your favorite? Do you prefer the B&W version or the full colored Photo Essay I posted earlier? Share in the comments section!
