Photo phiddlin' with AP

Recommended Posts

Every couple of years or so I visit the Bedfordshire (UK) Steam Fair and take tons of photos. This time I kept it down to just over two hundred; amazing self-restraint! I concentrated on unusual angles, detailed close-ups, and the like. This is part of the works of a paraffin (kerosene) fuelled vintage tractor. I cranked up the saturation a little in the first image, and later I thought I'd try it in mono. For that, I desaturated it and put it through the HDR persona to increase the local contrast, as well as the overall contrast. (Sometimes I find a better B&W result can be got by turning down one or more of the colours in the Black and White adjustment, but I didn't need to in this instance.)

And if you're wondering where this lot fits on a tractor, here's the whole thing ...
