Fun Photo Friday — Belfast Favorites

Angry Bird

Several years ago I published a series of blog articles on filtering black & white photographs to get the most out of them. I came across a photo in this series that demonstrates color filtering in stark terms. I’ll start with the color original:

Then convert it using red filtering, which lightens the reds and darkens the blues:

Red filtered conversion to black & white

And, lastly, a conversion using green filtering. Notice the opposite effect:

If you’re interested in those articles, I’ve supplied links at the end of today’s Fun Photo Friday. But, for now, let’s take a look at this week’s favorites below. And remember, I’ll be continuing this cruise series in three weeks. However next week will be Memorial Day tributes and the week after will commemorate the D-Day landings, 6 June 1944.
