  1. Wow…these are great in Mono…I’m guessing it’s bamboo, but looks almost metallic…great shots

    • Ahhh, I wish I could find some bamboo in these shapes! That would be great fun for a shoot. It is actually metal: chain links hanging on someone’s boat.

  3. Yay! You found presets. Cool! I like the composition on the first one.

    • Yeah, I’ve worked with the presets on other images, but find that they often overwork the details in a way (or not enough), and so I end up having to pull everything back or redo everything myself, so I usually prefer to “develop” with my own eye and individual categories. There are some presets that I like for certain kinds of images though.

  6. Excellent post-processing Melanie; I don’t know how they looked like before, but these photos are very catchy.
    Love the shapes that you captured.

  7. These are three delightful monochromatic photographs. The purple tone fits so beautifully to the subject and the graphical form. I don’t have a favourite and believe they all belong together as a whole. Great work!
