Cone Capped Post

Ok, I think I am going to wrap up this set with this image from the marina at Onondaga Lake Park. This was actually one of the last images I took at day. The cone is bright orange and the post was a dull red, which really stood out in the winter landscape. But as I processed the image I felt that the color was just not working. It was too overpowering. I decided to try a black and white conversion and once I did that I noticed that I was really pulled by the shapes, textures and feeling of aloneness. I played around with lightening the post and the cone following the conversion to help bring out the texture that was evident here better. Then I decided to go in and crop a bit more heavily. I like the end result.

Thanks for hanging through with this series.
