My weekend visit to Friday Harbor included a visit to the Farmer’s Market on Saturday. Friday Harbor is the county seat for the San Juan Islands in Washington State and as such is the largest community in the islands, though pretty small. It has a great market for fresh produce, crafts and other typical market products including good live music. I only took one picture at the market, and this is it, run through slightly different post-processing. I spotted this cabbage while waiting to pay for some flowers for my parents who I was visiting. The top image is a simple black and white conversion from the colour image below.
This colour image was tweaked by upping the contrast pretty heavily and a minor crop.
The monochrome version below was a Picasa accident – sometimes if I do a filtered black and white conversion, with a heavy colour filter, when I save I get a super contrasty, usually nearly black image, like the one below. After I muttered a few curses, I looked more closely and decided to keep this version as it has some merit, to my eyes.
My computer is in the shop again, so I might be slow in responding to comments.
