"In the Teeth of Winter" (10-5-11 11362v2c) is another very old pic that I worked on yesterday (mostly getting the right tilt and crop) and just again now. It's OK in it's full color version (which is not very colorful), but I wanted something more about it to imply the chilly weather in which it was taken. So I tried several different types of black and white conversion, none of which really did it either. Then I tried inverting the colors and applying a pale blue color filter...ack! But out of curiosity -- which I'm often motivated by -- I left it in that "ack!" version, re-inverted the colors, and voila! I like this sort of old-fashioned black and white photo look. I've used this effect in other architectural photos, but arrived at it by different, more direct editing pathways. And did not use a warming filter on this one as I've done on other pix.
