|MICKEY AT BOURNEMOUTH (SOLARIZED IMAGE)|
One exception in my use of colour is to Solarize the image....This still gives me the 'not of this world' image style that I like but the unreal mix of colour....all most pop art in appearance... can help to create a really unusual and bright picture that I find quite refreshing.
The solarized image above is typical of the effect. I took three images of this scene, black & white - colour- and this solarized one. Both the black and white and colour shots just did not work...they tended to appear flat and boring, however the solarized shot livened up the view and seems to work well with a colourful character like Mickey Mouse.
I prefer to make my image 'alterations' at the point of capture rather than post production.

For the next month I will be away cycling back to the UK from Gibraltar....I will resume posting on this blog towards the end of September....Probably back to black & white again..
