The example below show how much more effective a simple image can be with a monochrome conversion.
Hopefully by the wonders of modern science you should be able to move your mouse over the image below (grab and drag the little handle) and see a before/after example of the original image with nothing done to it (other than a slight crop), and then the ‘after’ image with a little TLC applied. What’s been done? Actually on this one not that much.
- Cloned out the plastic bag
- Converted to mono
- Localised exposure adjustments to bring up some shadow detail
Move the slider to the left to reveal the ‘before’ image..
