Exercise: Colours into tones 2

I couldn’t understand how to emphasis depth in a landscape and I didn’t find the example in the course book any help, so I cheated and used blur in the BW conversion.

I have several examples of this but I didn’t understand what was being asked.


The second example, that of lightening a complexion was achieved by boosting the red channel. I hadn’t expected that result, but there it is.

For the garden image I used a photo of Niecepore Niepce’s garden which we visited on holiday. This conversion was predictable in that it only involved boosting the green channel.

Of further interest was that by reducing the green channel I could make my subject stand out much more although granted she starts to look ghostly.

Flaneur for my own ailments; government and corporate hypocrisy; guitar stuff; the music business; home made videos featuring home made tunes played at home; a bit of golf; and of course photography. Specifically "art" photography (doesn't exist) and contemporary photography ( sadly does exist in all its grotesque reality).
