So, the alternative treatment of yesterday’s image was relatively straightforward.

After converting it to black and white, I added a layer mask to pick out the lights and the decoration in the balcony. I think it still retains the elegance and the drama of the building. And, although, the bike is a bit lost, I think it is an improvement. As ever, I’d appreciate your feedback.
