    Okay, so just to complete the impression that i still go out and shoot a lot, i'm posting you guessed it: more old pics that got some heavy editing!
    Basically contrast and saturation adjustments... that bridge looks awfull in real life... gotta make my city look good ;)

    I tried avoiding the cliche profile bridge shot and experimented a bit with the angles... so tell me what you think

    (oh yeah, and sorry for the sizes and quality... blame it photobucket. it seems to resize them totally at random, i'm just starting to have control over that...)

    4 is cool! Back in the 50s my dad shot oceanliners from the bridge as they left Montreal to cross the Atlantic.

    Thanks a whole lot for the comments guys! :D

    Airic: these must've been awesome shots... i wish we still could see the boats nowdays...





    Actually i just realized i didn't post a b&w version...
    se here's #3.
    it looks a bit wierd to me. i still can't figure out the best way to convert pics to b&w. I either desaturate them either check "Monochrome" in the channel mixer, but i always get different results with both :confused:
    anyways, this was done with the channel mixer, then added contrast and selective darkening on the arch.

    Well, I really like what colours you "squeezed" out of these, and I am not sure but tend to like 2 best, though the sky is a bit of a problem - on the other hand nothing distracts from the steel works underneath the bridge. I like the symmetry of Photo 2. But the close-up in 4 is also quite fascinating.
