Foggy Night at Lilydale Lake #2

Jason Green

Croydon, Australia

Artist's Description

This image is based on the same capture as Foggy Night at Lilydale Lake #1 but is presented in black-and-white with a slight touch of the Orton effect this time.

Although the gentle colouring and soft gradient of the original image was pleasing to my eyes, I really felt that this image leant itself to the black-and-white treatment given the narrow colour band in the original. I chose to apply the Orton effect ever so subtly in this version to soften the harsh lines of the man-made structures to give them that appearance of sinking into the fog just a little bit more.

I’m very interested to hear how others feel about the comparison between the two versions of this image… which one is your favourite?
