The Tram, Before and After

I took this picture in Fujicolour of a tram at night.  It’s a handheld shot, completely unzoomed to avoid as much shake as possible.

Next, I greyscaled it and cropped it to get rid of the light on the left and the scaffolding on the right.

Then I messed about with the levels to try and get a bit of glow from the tram lights compared to the street and to hide a bit of grain.

    Black and white is far more dramatic 🙂
