Bells are UTILITIES in the maritime lifestyle

Bells are useful UTILITIES on the sea, relaying information from the wheel house to the deck and below deck.

At the entrance of the St Augustine Marina is a concrete column with 2 huge bells, this view was taken while standing beneath the bells. 

I’d gotten away from B&W because the Topaz filter crashes nearly each time I use it. Thanks to Tammy, Boomer and Steve for suggesting “Quests” be transformed into B&W I decided to continue the process. The program crashed over and over. I did find some work arounds and used previous suggestions to add detail and separation so, it will be interesting to carry on the conversation on your thoughts and suggestions!

    • For some unknown I like shooting from the underside of things – glad you enjoyed. Thanks Iris for the b&w encouragement 🙂

      • Suppose you always let your “curious side” of you guide you and that is why your photos are so UNIQUE… who knows maybe a little “wren” made her nest up there and was waiting for you to find it ….Sassy

  1. Love the lines and the peak into those huge bells…the black and white and textures work together wonderfully!

  2. You did a great job with this conversion. Did you use Lightroom or Silver Efex Pro on this? Their conversion tools are pretty good. Also, contact topaz labs their pretty good at responding quickly to problems

    • This one was done with Topaz. Have never tried Lightroom or Silver Efex Pro. I did contact Topaz, their customer service is good at responding although there hasn’t been a pin point as to why the program crashes.
