As you can see, the subtle adjustment is done with the Brightness settings. I have already chosen a preset, filter and vignette, as I want this set of black and white landscape photography images to have a consistent look and feel.
The brightness is the only thing that is adjusted image by image.
So back to the image itself.
I have to say I really like it.
It has quite a timeless, even old fashioned feel about it. And I am loving all the tones and textures in this image.
The question I always have to ask myself is – do I prefer the colour image or the black and white image?
I like both, of course.
Do I have a favourite? Not really no. I like both. I am happy with both.
One problem I do have though is that I want to go back into Lightroom, Photoshop and Nik Silver Efex Pro and process the image again. There is always something more I can do to an image.
And that is the thing.
There will always be something more.
I know this. And I am learning to stop and move on. Which is what I will do with this lovely image.
I have another brand-new image to produce and write about tomorrow so time is against me. And we all must learn when to call time on the endless possibilities digital photography gives us.
Tomorrow – another new image from the series. And maybe a few other things in-between.
Really liking this image – did I say before?
