Rainy Night in Paris

One of those times I wished
I had a decent photo-editing program.
I'd like to get more detail in that
poster on the right side.

Your treatment is visually dramatic especially in the area of the sidewalk with the rain falling and the reflective quality created by the lights from along the street cast on the wet sidewalk. That 1/3 of the total image holds my attention while the areas to the left and the right of the sidewalk don't hold my attention to the same degree.

What effect did you use to create this black and red format?

Jan, I had to try to recall how I came up with that effect.
Most times, I just play around until I find an effect I like.
I went back with another photo and found that I could get this
same effect by using ADJUST COLOR, then use Color Temperature,
Tint and Saturation until I get the Red & The Black effect I
was looking for. Hope this is helpful.

I forgot to add.....using EXPOSURE , also helps effect

The further images in the comment section say to me that the procedures you have undertaken result in visually effective compositions. I think would have to be selective in the subject matter that you applied the effects to such as the reflective nature of a rainy evening in the urban setting or the costumed figures from the carnival.

effect to be used sparingly, for sure.

I really like it...quite different. Great choice of the effects for a nighttime rainy setting. I guess you will have to get out more in the rain...?;-)

Bold explorations are to be congratulated. ;)

Taking the photo is just the beginning, isn't it ?
