I loved a recent article about digital cross-processing, about recreating this traditional look digitally. The pictures in the article were stunning and created a lot of visual impact.
I wanted to have ago myself, so I selected a picture from a recent cycling trip along the Wirral Way, 12 miles of disused railway running from Hooton to West Kirby. Along the route there is an old station called Hadlow Road Station which was closed in 1952 and which has now been restored. Recreating the cross-processed look allowed me to create a washed out, faded look, almost capturing times gone by. It softens the picture by reducing the modern day harshness of the colour and tones.
