London, England – Parliament Building (HDR)

Parliament Building HDR-BW

NIKON D300, Nikon 12-24, HDR in Photomatix, Silver Efex Pro

I was going through some older HDR’s yesterday and post processed this one.   It looked cool, but needed something to make it stand out.  I truly love Silver Efex Pro – black & white converter and gave it a try.  Nice, but needed a little more of a kick.  This was a sunset shot and the clock was lit up…I just highlighted the clock, inverted the area and used Silver Efex pro to convert everywhere except the clock face black and white.   A little contrast kick to give it that dark feel…and here it is!  An instant favorite of mine!

I’m sure there are millions of photos of the Parliament Building and Big Ben…why not try something different?   Hope this one works?  Enjoy the spooky night shot…Halloween is coming soon!
