Ghandi statue (enhanced)

15/52 for the group T189ers weekly alphabet challenge

This week's theme: H is for High Pass Filter

I do love the way this group gives challenges that mix the technical with the artistic!

Quite by chance, one of the photos I took in London at the weekend is perfect for this treatment. I was heading to Russell Square tube station and noticed that the gates were open on the garden in the middle of Tavistock Square, so instead of walking round, I walked through the gardens themselves. This statue of Ghandi caught my eye, particularly as people had been laying flowers there.

I had deliberately not taken a camera because I was spending most of the weekend in the British SF convention, but I couldn't resist taking this shot with my phone. As the quality of photos taken with the phone doesn't match the sharpness of the DSLR, I used the High Pass Filter to sharpen it a little.

The original, straight out of camera shot is behind the cut.

The adjustment is very subtle, but the detail of the flowers and buildings is just a little crisper.
