River Poems - A Temptation by 

Unending journey with River Poems #4.

Recently, I caught with the monochromengitis – where the victim tempts to SEE the colorful world in B&W. It’s non recoverable & the victim carries the disease till the end :D.

The original image was processed with Gorman – Holbert conversion method layered with Russel Brown method to get this result.

RAW file was processed in Adobe Camera Raw & converted to 5 TIFF format files with (+/-) 0, 0.5 & 1.0 exposure values and taken in Photomatrix for HDR conversion. Finally balanced in PS with multiple layer processing.

Equipment : Canon EOS 400D, Tamron 28 – 300 mm lens @ 46 mm.

Av – F22.0, Tv – 1/15 Sec. ISO 100. Hand held
