This week’s image is something completely different.
I spent the first part of the week in Brighton, on the South Coast of the UK. There’s nothing quite like a winter visit to the seaside. This is the first time I have been to Brighton and I loved it.
I did try a few shots whilst I was there but the weather wasn’t conducive. And to be honest, my heart wasn’t in it. I enjoyed taking a few snaps, but what I enjoyed more was playing around with them in post-processing.
If you have visited my YouTube channel in the past couple of days, you might have seen my video using On1 Photo RAW 2018. Following the video, I have been experimenting more with the software and I really like some of the effects. This one uses the Bleach Bypass filter together with some tone and colour adjustments. I think the effect quite suits the clear hard light you see in winter at the seaside.
I hope you have a great weekend.

Great image Robin. Agree with you choice of editing style, has given it just the right ‘time of year’ feel. Worth pointing out to anyone not familiar with Brighton, (a lovely archetypal English seaside resort) the tall thin tower above the second from left deckchair is the British Airways i360, a fascinating circular pod that sits around a column and rises up on it to give an all round view. Not sure of it’s height though!
Thanks Chris. I may share a couple of shots of the i360. The underside of the pod is mirrored and creates a few bizarre effects when you use a telephoto lens.
