Cappadocia – duotone

I read in a ‘how to’ book on photography yesterday that it’s very hard to capture unique images in places that are visited by thousands of tourists.  Cappadocia in Turkey was like that for me.  Looking at the colour photos I took I realise that they don’t convey the strange  sense of having strayed into an alternate reality or fairyland I had there.  I have been experimenting with duotone processing to try and capture something of this feeling.

Playing around with the Curves Tool on this one really added to the effect:-

  1. Great shots Suzanne and love the duotone colours. It does give it that magical feeling and I agree. It’s no fun trying to take shots of something you see and there are people hanging around.
    Who wants to think about work and people when you are having fun? I see you enjoyed. 😀 ♥ Hugs ♥

    1. I thought of you while I was doing this post. Totally too late for your duotone challenge but you’ll be happy to know the photos you posted on your blog when you were running the challenge inspired me to do these images. It’s funny how the effect works on some images and looks rubbish on others though.

      1. Awww, that’s so sweet of you Suzanne. I don’t host challenges anymore. Maybe one day again. For now I am just enjoying taking photo’s and visiting blogs when I can. 😀

        I am very glad to hear that hon and keep posting them. I love seeing it. You take stunning shots and I just love the edits. 🙂

        It sure is and that is a fact. There are some shots you can edit in many ways and some just don’t work. I’ve had lots of those. 😀

Please comment. I love knowing what you think.
