MM 3-52 Rome Silhouette

For this week’s Monochrome Madness Challenge I have decided to take a photo from my recent posting on Easter Sunday in Rome (see here — it’s photo # 2) and convert it to monochrome using Lightroom and the Silhouette preset in Nik Silver Efex Pro.

Police officer, fountain and huge crowd attending the Pope’s Easter Sunday Mass in Vatican City’s Piazza San Pietro. The photo was taken on April 12, 2009.

This week marks the conclusion of three years of Monochrome Madness. Congratulations to Australian photographer Leanne Cole for hosting this successful Challenge! Drop by her website on Thursdays (Wednesdays in North America and Europe) to see how Leanne and other photographers from all over the world interpret monochrome photography.

    Great built up in this picture.. the placement of the police man is striking!

  2. Thanks, Pieter! I cropped the original photo and turned it into a vertical picture so that both the fountain in the mddleground and the policeman in the foreground conform to the Rule of Thirds.
