For the final black and white image on this Sunday I am going to explain (briefly) how I produced the black and white version of this picture using Nik Silver Efex Pro, the free software from Google that you can get to straight from Lightroom.
I have cropped this image making a tighter composition and getting rid of the black bit in the foregrund
- I went with the full dynamic smooth preset
- Lens fall off 3
- Blue filter
- Finally dynamic brightness I boosted to 60% to give the rock face a lift
Like I say I am going for bolder editing like this to hopefully produce more striking images.
I quite like this edit.
