The Cross

GRD III, f1.9, 1/25, ISO 800, RAW

While walking past this church I had an idea for a picture. I saw this cross backlit in b&w with a lot of noise, almost like the scene of an old horror movie.
Well, aside from the proper backlighting I got the picture as I wanted by adding lots of noise in Photoshop and changing the contrast.


  1. I like this one. Old crosses in B&W have a lot of character. At ISO 800 you had to add noise...this is great. In the past we had to run these through Noise Ninja to get rid of the noise ;-)

  2. Thanks for your comment Marco!
    You are right about running a picture taken at ISO 800 through Noise Ninja before and most people would probably still do it. I like the character that noise gives to an image so always try to have some noise in my pictures. Too clean pictures look digital and boring in my opinion.
