Glasgow in Black and White


Glasgow

A recent short stay in Glasgow gave me the opportunity to photograph the remarkable modern architecture which has been built on the site of the former dockyards.  Unfortunately, the weather was not ideal.  It rained  for much of the morning that I had available for taking photographs.  The light levels were low and there was not much contrast in it.  I decided that I would convert the photographs that I took into black and white in order to mitigate these issues.  I used Corel PaintShop Pro X5 to process the images.  It has a function that makes it possible to make a HDR image from a single RAW file.  I used this to increase the contrast of my photographs.  I am pleased with the results.  A selection is shown here - there are more in my Flickr photostream.
