Photographing Urban Decay - Take 2

This post follows my earlier post on photographing urban decay. Basically, this process differs slightly from the "all Raw Therapee" based workflow of my previous post, and involves the GIMP.

As with all my posts, I present the finished goods...

The Raw Therapee workflow is very similar to the one outlined in my previous post; except that I don't desaturate colours, or change the RGB curves or white balance.

I load the processed image in the GIMP, duplicate the layer, desaturate it, set the opacity of the desaturated layer to around 45 percent.

Then I just fire up my "Retro Effect" script.

And that is how I create my second take on Urban Decay.
