Eastern North Carolina has an interesting history that is marked and recognized in just about every town and city. I got this HDR shot while strolling around Washington, North Carolina on a cloudy, rainy day earlier this year. This was part of my “Poppin a few with the Nifty Fifty” photo walk.
Not knowing anything about Daniel Gould Fowle, I decided to do a little research to go along with this image. He was the first governor of North Carolina to live in the current executive mansion and is best known for his work toward establishing a college for women that later was called University of North Carolina at Greensboro. For more information on Mr Fowle your can check the “North Carolina History Project“.
I’m throwing in another monochrome conversion today. This was done using Nik Silver Efex Pro 2 with the # 27 preset, Soft Sepia. I boosted the Structure to 17%, set the yellow filter to hue = 60 and Strength to 50%.
