Monochrome Madness: Snaking Wall

SnakingWall-RajivChopra

This time, I took a slightly different turn on the challenge of “Curves”, and I pulled one out of the crypt, so to speak

This dates back to the years that I was living in China, and had visited the section of The Great Wall, in Badaling, at Beijing.

I was fascinated, even at that time, as to how the Wall, snaked itself around, and over the mountains.

This edit was done to highlight the snaking, curving path against a very dark mountainous background.

Oh, for those interested, I duplicated the background, and used the Topaz B&W Effects Filter. I then added a vignette, and a very slight curves adjustment

During the edit, I also boosted the whites and the blacks, to heighten the contrast

  1. It is beautifully dramatic, the heightened contrast adds even more to that. Amazing structure, no wonder that is a world wonder. One wonders upon the thought of scale, man made and nature made, here both are most impressive.
