I took this photograph above, the other day. It weather was a dull. It was a snatched photograph. It was one of those photographs you have to do something with. Therein lies the dilemma.
I normally use Lightroom to ‘develop’ my photographs and rarely resort to filters but in this case I did.
The Direct Positive filter gave the image a bit of punch without over-saturating the image – it says Yellow Lines!
The Bleach Bypass filter says more about the day and less about the yellow lines.
I like both images for different reasons. What it comes down to is mood. Not just the mood of what I’m trying to say but how I’m feeling when I’m trying to say it. I feel filters should be a starting point but these cases I went with ‘as is’. However, I’ve been told there’s no substitute for getting right at the point of shooting 😉
