OK. This is the black and white version of the picture I posted yesterday. What do you think?
The image has become quite graphic and stark. I find it amazing what a difference it can make when an image is converted from colour image to a black and white image.
Talking of which, this is what I did in Nik Silver Efex Pro to produce this black and white landscape photography image.
- Fine Art Process
- Lens Falloff 1
- Overall brightness -31%
- Highlights -22%
- Midtones +7%
- Shadows -38%
- Dynamic brightness -25%
Again the processing is following the same consistent settings used for the other black and website images in this series. The bespoke tweaks were done with the brightness panel in Nik.
And there was quite a bit of tweaking and going back and forth to get the image you can see in this post.
There is a big lump of white sky in this image, which does not work too well in black and white. I think the next image will though, being a much tighter crop.
This is not my favourite image of the series of pictures I am posting, and might not make the final selection. But then again the more I look at this picture the more I find myself liking it.
Tomorrow is the tighter crop version of this picture, I am looking forward to writing about and posting. And then before we know it we are back at the end of another week, and almost halfway through February.
Blimey. What happened to January? And where did the first 6 weeks of 2017 go? Just checked behind the sofa but nothing there…
