MM 2-45: A High Key Look at Barcelona

For this week’s Monochrome Madness Challenge I decided to experiment with the High Key 2 Preset (# 8) of the Nik Silver Efex Pro 2 plug-in to Adobe Lightroom.  I took this photo the day last October when we toured Barcelona from a hop on/ off sightseeing bus.

We had just passed Barcelona’s major train station, Estacio de Sant, when I  came across this scene and I was fascinated by the patterns of the trees in their planters, the benches, the light poles, the seven towers, the twin buildings in the background.

See here for more photos I took on the tour bus Red Route that day, including the color version of this picture. See here for the photos I took on the Blue Route that morning. And after lunch and between bus rides we strolled down La Rambla and I took some more pictures which you can see here.  All told, I took more than 400 photos that day.
