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.
