Writing with Light

It’s A Job

I hope that everyone had a wonderful labour day weekend. Keeping with the street performer theme of my last post…which you can see here I thought that this would be a fitting addition as it was just “labour day”.

Once again I’ve used Topaz Black & White Effects to convert this image to monochrome. The folks at Topaz have given me a B&W Effects to give away this week. All you have to do is follow me on Twitter to be eligible, so if you’re not following yet go ahead and click on the follow button on the right. I will be drawing the winner on Friday and will be announcing it on Twitter.

Canon XTi, Sigma 18 - 200mm, f/5, 1/50

  1. Very nice image Edith. I like the tones and contrasts in this. I downloaded Topaz B&W this weekend but never got a chance to use it. Saw that you were quoted on their site. Looking forward to trying it.

    What’s that chained item in the foreground?

  4. Very cool! My first impression of the shot was that this was a statue. Then I read your text, and finally noticed the can where you can put your change.

    Excellent shot, you got it all in this one…

  17. Excellent shot Edith. Great processing to mono. Thought it was a statue too! Might try out the free trial with Topaz. I love Silver Efex but this may be worth a go!

  20. Edith. I am really enjoying what you are doing with Topaz and this image is “over the top”. I too initially thought it was a statue until I looked closer. Fantastic.
