On Father’s day, I took my Matchless for a nice 50 mile ride. I stopped by the old bridge on Minsi Trail to get a photo.

I took the photo with my cell phone, imported it to lightroom and post-processed it in HDR EFEX Pro where I also performed the monochrome conversion. I like the abstract feeling, almost like it’s from an old advertising brochure. The original is below the monochrome, hence my contribution to The Weekend in Black and White June 24, 2016.

    Beautiful machine! Lovely lines on that bridge, too. I like the effect of your edit.

    the black and white shot looks retro to me, like a photo from the 1950s – good work 🙂

    Both versions are awesome, although the b/w has a little ooomph and mystery.

    Visiting from BLACK AND WHITE WEEKEND.
