I’m looking for a title of this one. I really like the image but I can’t figure out what I’d like to call it. A lot of photographers don’t title there pictures and maybe that’s the best thing to do with this one.

Rainy Day Alley In Thirds (Lucky Shot)

The strong verticals in this photograph neatly divide it in thirds. To be honest about it, I didn’t see this when I took the picture. It was the figure in the foreground that mattered, 

Monochrome Clouds

Yes I know this could almost be a monochrome watercolor. It isn’t though, it’s just a standard photographic image processed in Lightroom and Nik Silver Efex Pro 2. What makes it look this way is the fact that it was a misty day and when I used the dehaze slider in Lightroom everything softened out. That, coupled with a little more tweaking with the…

This Is Hard To Look At
