I was out for a walk yesterday (15.04.2012) and as I was walking down my street I decided to put my camera in to Shutter Speed priority mode and detach the lens slightly so the camera wouldn’t correct any of the settings. So I kept on walking and look this shot.
Initially, it was very washed out so I opened it in Camera RAW 7.0 (Because I shot in RAW this made everything so much easier) and started adjusting the lighting. One I had done that I opened it into Photoshop and applied a black to white gradient fill and adjusted it to give a high contrast black and white look.
I am really happy with this :)
Edited in Adobe Camera RAW
