When I planed to visit the Finnish railway museum(Suomen Rautatiemuseo) at Hyvinkää, I thought I’ll take lot of monochrome photos, that will depict the bygone era. In reality when I process my photos with monochrome filter it does not look very good. I found that other filter works better.
I used silvertone filter for the top photo in the collage below. With this filter I get my desired black and white effect along with good contrast and lustre of metallic surfaces.
For the wheels I choose warm filter. After adding this effect when I look at the photo my imagination shoot up, I can visualise the red hot coal in steam engine, making the surroundings hot and glowing. Last photo in this collage is with vintage effect.
Taking away colours does not always bring the desired effect. In the photos below colour breaks the monotony.
