The Lion of Segovia run through the photo app Stackables with some subtle monochrome looks, something I find Stackables does better than any other app.
‘Tintype’ is a great formula but doesn’t work as well if the centre of interest is off to one side as in this image.
I find the green tones of the ‘Serenity‘ formula lovely, but overall too soft and always find myself hitting ‘Auto Contrast‘ in Photoshop. (This is my favourite of the week.)
The blue tones of the ‘Last Summer‘ formula, were also too soft and upped with ‘Auto Contrast‘ and then desaturated slightly. I should note here that Last Summer’s is actually a faded version of the colours in the photo and not a true blue monochrome like the ‘Silverado’ formula.
The browny tones of ‘Abandoned’, lightened using Photoshop Levels. My own concoction of a formula, based on reworking ‘Anarchy’. I really put Stackables through a ‘Monochrome Exploration of Glenveagh Gardens in Ireland’, and although I didn’t cover all the monochrome formulas, the ones I did cover were very different than the ones I selected here.
