Kite Day

Hi all,

Another photo taken at New Brighton Beach Christchurch NZ. Kite day. Photo was taken in colour and converted using Photoshop CS3 (New Layer B&W). Even though the kites were colourful I am pleased with the B&W versions as it goes with the cloud formation - the kites seem to have a feeling of lightness.

Re: Kite Day

Very nice Trev - I really like the mono conversion; a nice soft tone. The sky helps nicely too. A nice subject, captured very nicely indeed.

Re: Kite Day

I love everything about this shot and I also agree it works well in B/W.

I'm always on the lookout for people flying interesting kites lie those in your photo too but I never seem to have any luck, always finding the boring kites.

Re: Kite Day

I believe this is somewhere close to the "Stairway to Heaven"?
Nice photo and the greyscale fits nice too.

Re: Kite Day

Hi ddigit,
A winner in my opinion, lovely smooth gadiation and very clean, clear and sharp, great conversion.
