Using the sunlight

Using the sunlight

This image was also taken in Edinburgh – on a bright sunny day. As I stood outside the National Gallery, I looked up and spotted the General Assembly hall behind the branches of the tree. I instantly knew that I wanted to try to capture the building in silhouette. It’s not exactly perfect, but it’s OK. I felt that changing the exposure any more would lose the foreground details. P1220847

Then it occurred to me that it would look better in black and white. One simple conversion late, and I think I’ve got a much better image. What do you think?
