My pictures of Shanghai from the water were dull and lifeless; after all it was raining and smoggy. I began experimenting with black and white and fell upon an “aged” preset for photos in Lightroom. Perfect.
The aged photos of modern buildings in Pudong were no less impressive.
This is one of my favourite photos from the trip, also of Pudong.
The industrial aspects of the river also look good in sepia.
Next post: In keeping with the aged photo theme, a digression to a link that goes even further back – and to a much newer one.
