VIBRANT Waffles

This week, share a photo of something vibrant. Vivid colors, a lively portrait, or perhaps a delightfully colorful landscape, if you’re in a warmer climate. Let’s wash the web with a rainbow of colors to keep the winter gloom at bay.

ABFriday

in response to Ben's After-Before Friday (73)

before 

with simple Lightroom editing:
some basic enhancement (contrast, clarity, blacks and whites),
 I reduced a bit both saturation and vibrance but added 
split toning (same value in highlights and shadows but with different saturation)

after

The Day After

Cardinal is hosting The Changing Seasons for the second year
The idea is to capture all the changes of one location throughout the year: the seasons, the weather, different times of the day

This year we can choose (or combine) Version 1 or Version 2:
 V1  Each month, post 5-20 photos in a gallery (only new shots)
V2 Each month, post one photo (recipe, painting, drawing, whatever) that represents your   interpretation of the month

I will be presenting downtown Brussels in B&W in V1 
these photos were taken on January 1st around noon

shops closed, sales to start in a few days

too early for a drink or a piece of cake after last nights parties


"Plaisirs d'hiver" (skating rink, X-mas huts and decorations) are still up



armed police and soldiers patrolling the town

despite high terrorist alert some tourist are strolling around






all in all not many people in the city center
