This is what I did to this image in Nik Silver Efex Pro. I wanted to maintain the brightness and range of tones in the image, as well as the textures in the sea, which look lovely in black and white.
Full Dynamic Harsh
Green. Not sure why but it was a close call between green and no filter.
Lens Falloff 2. Which is going to have a heap of brightness added to it!
Well not too much. It just didn't work.
Overall brightness +5%
Dynamic brightness +22%
And that is that. Another image which I can add to my black and white landscape photography in Dorset web page. And another day of social media posting sorted!
