11/11 Remember


Day 72
Armistice

I've had a go at using Layer mask and gradient map to keep the red of the poppy but convert everything else to B&W. I think this technique has lots of potential for adding drama and emotion to shots.

The poem is 'Liberty' by Edward Thomas. He is one of the lesser known WWI poets but one of my favourites. He was killed in 1917 in the battle of Arras. We remember.
