More Stackables Monochrome Looks

In a previous post, the Monochrome Garden, I looked in detail at six monochrome ‘formulas’ in Stackables.

Here’s a second batch!

Stackables ‘Tintype‘ formula: Old, scratchy, blurry – this formula works great if there’s something of interest in the centre, even if the original image is slightly out-of-focus as in my ‘monk walking towards a lit doorway’ shot.
Stackables 'Tintype' formulaAlthough all formulas are adjustable, Tintype is very complex, and I couldn’t find a way to shift the primary focus over to this off-centre lion other than to change the radius of the ‘Tilt-Shift’ to include more of the image.In Segovia, Spain, the white statue of a lion in front of a church done in Stackables Tintype?These metal stairs in a Dublin museum uses the Tintype formula with the ‘Decay’ overlay removed to make it moodier. Metal stairs in a Dublin museum run through the photo app StackablesWinter Blues is like a faded ‘colour’ tintype, old-looking with soft blue tones. I’m rather fond of this look but not sure where I would use it.
Stackables 'Winter Blues' formulaA cherub with the blues…Glenveagh Castle Garden Cherub in Stackables Winter Blues FormulaSingle-lane detour on the Dingle Peninsula in Ireland, run through the formula ‘Sands of Time‘, a gritty formula that only works once in a while. Single-lane detour on the Dingle Peninsula in Ireland, run through the photo app Stackables 'formula' Sands of TimeI find that the Sands of Time formula causes one side to be too dark and the other too light.Parador Wine run through the photo app Stackable formula 'Sands of Time'On this stone circle in Ireland I adjusted the formula heavily in Photoshop, lightening the dark side and darkening the light side.Drombeg Stone Circle run through the photo app Stackable formula 'Sands of Time'The Spooky formula is too dark for many images, but when it works I like the way it conjures up cobwebs on a dark night. This old Mobulette is one of those rare images that worked with almost every formula I tried. (Ten different formulas applied to this image.)The Rusty Mobulette at the Sacred Shore Parador Apped in StackablesMore of Ryan Photography’s Photo for the Week: Monochrome Fine Art.
