Station

****QUESTION***** Is it me or is the selective colouring or selective desaturation such a cumbersome process in Photoshop CS2???  Firstly one has to be a rocket scientist to learn these techniques, then it takes soo long I keep thinking why bother. I just generally still use Adobe Elements for all my selective desaturation. bang bang, done, no faffing around with layers and all :)  So am I being lazy or is it really a cumbersome process people ????

 

Okay have decided to BIG UP my little city of Milton Keynes, land of the thousand roundabout, land of the the concrete cows, land of tree-lined boulevards, a clean, green environment and clean-cut modern buildings.

Land of one of the biggest shopping centres in the country, an indoor ski slope with "real" snow and the most successful theatre outside the West End.

What do most visitors see when first visiting MK (assumimg they came by train)? Yes it's the Milton Keynes Train Station.  So what better way to pay homage to this lovely City I call home? Put up this image ofcourse :)

One of the things I love about MK is the fact I can get anywhere I want to in 15 minutes maximum, and guess what, we have everything you can find in London or any other Major city just outside my door. Anyone know of any other city you can go to Costco, Tesco Extra, Asda, Ikea and even stop of at your local Wagamama in under 4 hours?  Yep MK is it.

MK, land of no traffic.  How anyone lives in London & New York (2 of the places I personally dislike), I will never know.

Anyway, hope you guys all had a lovely fun weekend. May this coming week by more successful than last week.  Have fun guys and keep blogging, keep visiting  shutterchance.com and most importantly, keep smiling.

Would love to visit your place someday, thats a big and beautiful station! smile

Hmmm...Issues....

You forgot to correct the distortion created by the 17mm focal length and also wouldn't the border be better in white? Personal pref.
This is a great shot, Suby. The forground lines draw you into the photograph. The BW treatment works well. High regards.
wow, look like a great city...this station is huge, nice perspective and horizontal line from the building, great capturesmile
The B&W gives it a little gloomy effect.
Very nice Suby. I like the B&W effect

nice shot, well presented as well. i think i may have prefered the border a lighter colour, but it works as it is anyway
I walked past the station only this weekend, Its a great shot which is sending back there to have another look as I recognised it as the page loaded but it looks so much better through your eyes!
Nice one Suby, the b&w looks perfect.

By the way, Suby, FYI - that red is very hard to read on a black background.
Other than a little lens distortion this is a really good stron image.
Very ominous looking building. Love the converging lines and also the horizontal lines in this shot - they lead you right into the photo.
I really like this.. good composition

Suby & Sinem: Thanks, You are not already a fan of the Subster? Horror, shock, dejection (and then a slow scream of nooooooooo.....).
