Now I like the black and white version of this picture of the boat.
Firstly, this is what I did in Nik Silver Efex Pro to produce this image
I preferred the effect of the Full Dynamic Harsh preset, which pulled out all the textures, tones and details in the picture.
This was an interesting one, as each filter had a slightly different effect. I chose the green filter.
Lens Falloff 2. A nice heavy vignette was in order here, giving a feeling of depth to the image.
I pushed the Dynamic Brightness to +48% and called this image good.
I like the contrasty, sharp, textural feel of this image. Next for this particular shot is to try a different crop of the image. The original composition works. I like this picture.
