Tower Bridge In Black And White

Playing with DXO Filmpack 3.

A week or so ago I posted a version of this shot to the +UK Photography Community _!!!!!! BLUE SKIES + FABULOUS WEATHER SPOTTED IN THE UK !!!!!_ event album. I disclosed then that I had removed a small boat (lower left corner) and 'fixed' the reflection of the North Tower. In looking for a candidate photo to play with my new DxO Labs filters, I saw an opportunity with this scene.

The previous post ( http://goo.gl/1sIWl ) was processed using an older Camera Raw version, so besides playing with the filters, it was a chance to see if I couldn't clean things up better with newer tools. That done, I first used DxO Viewpoint to reduce, but not remove altogether, the keystone effect that resulted from photographing the bridge from this vantage point. I think that came out rather natural looking.

After that I took the picture into DxO FilmPack3 and chose the Fuji Neopan Acros 100 filter. I couldn't tell you if my life depended on it whether this resembles a frame shot on that film; I just liked the way it converted the scene into black and white.
