An Evening Stroll by taffy

An Evening Stroll

Cleaning out hard drives and transferring files has some advantages (not many, I'm sure). It's fun to find a photo that seems to ask for (re)processing. This one is from Barcelona in December 2015, just off the main street, Las Ramblas.
Thank you for your comments and favs that put my strange contrails on TT this week. It was exciting to see it there. Life is getting in the way of photography in general and 365 in particular - as happens to us all. Hoping to be more regularly commenting and posting in another few days.
Oh Taffy, my sentiments exactly about a full life that requires paring down so many activities. Like you, over the winter, I really enjoyed coming across some old photos and reprocessing them! That could fill days on end in and of itself... And I do understand what it means to tie up loose ends before leaving for an extended time. So many wonderful choices, and not enough time to do it all! I do love what you did with your processing on this marvelous image. The lighting is good within, and you did a nice job with the lights and shadows!

Knowing how this looked in real life, and seeing the color version as shot, this black and white one stands out as evidence of how good processing makes even the most seemingly mundane images stand out as engaging viewing.

Wow...Superb image and processing :)

it is always fun to find some photos in the past that was missed and reassess its potential.

Reading Junko's comment I would like to see the original and then go through the processing with you to get this fabulous result! Love the arches and the light repeating along the corridor. Fav!
Life has definitely got in the way of 365 for me at the moment! Hoping to get lots of photos next week in Chicago which I can take my time in processing when I get home again ,

Outstanding composition, great use of light & shadow

Looks like a very subterranean world. Interesting pattern repeats, both in light and architecture.
Life is nuts here at the moment too. It may calm down again once the teenager's exams are done, so long as he does well enough. Aggghh, no pressure there then!! You enjoy your busy days. We'll all still be here when you're done.

wonderful processing and simply a great shot taffy - good luck with your hard drive housekeeping :)
April 23rd, 2017  
Love the repetition of the lights as your eye follows the corridor :) fav

I knew this was a Taffy photo right away! The great leading lines draw me in, even though there's an eerie feeling, and the humans add scale. Looks super on black!
April 23rd, 2017  
Sensational Shot Taffy, th leading lines draw me right into this scene, I want to know more.
April 23rd, 2017  
Superb! Really atmospheric, and my eye was immediately drawn into this shot due to its great composition and lines
April 23rd, 2017  
Wow awesome processing Taffy!
April 23rd, 2017  
Fav! Mystery, lightning and shadows!
April 23rd, 2017  
Wonderful light and shadows
April 23rd, 2017  
Great processing and POV Fav

I've spent some time looking at this, and it looks terrific on black, where the light and shadows are so beautifully rendered. A great composition too, with its leading lines. Clear fav for me. Can identify with your feeling about life getting in the way of 365; this happened to me, and it was good to take a break and come back now in a more measured way.
April 23rd, 2017  
Brilliant POV processing and light and shade, fav
April 23rd, 2017  
Great black & white.
April 23rd, 2017  
The is cool!
April 23rd, 2017  
Very nice lighting and repetition. Life does have a tendency to get in the way of 365 at times!
April 23rd, 2017  
Sensational viewed on black! Strong leading lines and repetition. Interesting that you mention life getting in the way of photography and 365 because that's exactly what happened to me the last two days. :-)
April 23rd, 2017  
Having not seen the original, I can only say this is a spectacular shot, there's so much to see! It's like a mirror to mirror shot, it goes on forever.
April 23rd, 2017  
Lovely, how the lighting emphasizes the symmetry. A newly found treasure! Cleaning out hard drives is like cleaning out a closet, I guess. You never know what you might find! :)
April 23rd, 2017  
Super lighting. Love the processing

Great leading line shot and use of the light.
April 24th, 2017  
I love the repetition of the arches. Looks great in black and white Know what you mean about life getting in the way of 365 at the moment. I am racing round so much I am nearly meeting myself coming back.
April 24th, 2017  
love this one
April 24th, 2017  
I like the gloss and the patterns between the light patches on the floor. And the depth of the photo which seems to suggest an opening out to a lighter area at the end of the row of arches.
April 24th, 2017  
Wonderful composition, capture
April 24th, 2017  
Fabulous b&w ... love the repeating patterns
April 25th, 2017  
@pamknowler Maybe if we have a rainy day, we can do some processing together.
April 25th, 2017  
@pamknowler Over wine...

@taffy now you're talking! Lol! Playing with iPAd at moment with LR for IPad. But limited but seems fine. 1.30am and I'm awake! Oh no! See you later.
April 25th, 2017  
what a great treasure you discovered. i, too, when time permits these days, would look at the old photographs I've taken in my wanderings when i first got my dslr. i've discovered some really really good ones and i tell myself, i wasn't so bad even in the beginning. they're of course not in the same super league as yours....:-)
April 25th, 2017  
Wonderful photo.
April 25th, 2017  
Instant fav love the composition; wonderful use of the light and shadow
creating great detail, tones and textures to amplify the place and context
of the people.
April 25th, 2017  
Luminous! Fav!
April 25th, 2017  
Love the receding arches and lights. Excellent shot!
April 26th, 2017
