Since I had another day of not shooting I had to dig into some recent shots that I hadn’t got round to processing. Thankfully while I was out last week getting some images of the food trucks I happened to grab a few different perspectives of the Farine Five Roses neon sign.
Having made a stupid mistake of cranking up the ISO to 1100 without noticing during my shooting that day, I wasn’t actually going to do anything with these. But with today’s software magic, 1100 isn’t so bad and I put them through the Lightroom and Topaz mixer to see if I could salvage anything.
I decided to go a bit radical with the first shot and process using one of the Solarized Dream presets in Topaz Adjust as a jumping off point. (see below for a great offer on Topaz Labs bundle package)
A good view of the iconic sign is from the rue de la Commune where it runs alongside the Lachine Canal. I took a couple more shots along there:
The final shot was taken beneath the Railway bridge near rue Ann.
Hopefully I will get out tomorrow for some fresh shots, otherwise I’ll be digging into my history files again for tomorrow’s post.
