The Fence

My first monochrome image in a long time and I suspected that after reviewing the shots from Manassas Battlefield I would be doing a lot of these in monochrome just because the light was so overcast.

This fence encloses the house that is on the battlefield that was used as a command center for one of the two warring armies. It’s a typical US Civil War style fence and if you have traveled or lived in a Southern state its rather typical so you see them often.

I used A mount 17-35mm Tokina that I picked up to cover the areas between my on order 15mm Voigtlander and the Sony 24-240mm. That and a 50mm macro are my last two adapted lenses for the A7R. It did a nice job with this image and the vignetting is from the monochrome conversion not the lens. Speaking of conversion to monochrome I used Tonality CK instead of doing it manually or SilverFX. I was very pleased with how it came out and I got a lot more control over the final image than I do with SilverFX.
