Shanghai in Sepia

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.

This photo was taken from about as far down river as our cruise went, looking back at the high-rises of Pudong.

The industrial aspects of the river also look good in sepia.

Luxury liner and barges, also a repeat from a previous post, but better with an 'aged' look.
