Boston in Urban Acid Look

    Newer Older

    Over last weeks I have seen some pictures in "urban acid look" style and liked it somehow. The basic idea behind it is pretty simple. Just change the gradiation curve for every color individually and criss cross red and blue curve. Means increase the contrast of the blues and reduce the contrast of the red. It is very similar too cross-processing.

    I like the result. It gives a somehow strange cold feeling to a picture. The exposure was 1/10 with f16 achieved with the help of ND filter.

      nice treatment - I like the motion blur, it brings the photo to life (important with such cold colours) :-)
