01 Apr 11.  I'll push my luck and share yet another B&W image for today. As there was a request for some info on the Salish Slough location, I decided to take one of those HDR images not yet shared, convert to B&W, and see what I might come up with. Earlier tonight I was watching another of the nik webinars on B&W imaging, this time on advanced techniques, and wouldn't you know it, the discussion was on converting HDR images into B&W. To think that I was actually onto something. Oh well, I guess others decided before I did that it would a worthwhile endeavor. And I believe it is a great way to work with B&W. This old hulk was a study in browns, yellows, and reds, so it seemed a good candidate for B&W. If I worked this image correctly, your eye should be immediately directed to around the 9 o'clock central third, then bounce around in a circle without desiring to leave the picture. Your screen is going to have some effect on how it presents I believe as it is more dramatic on my work box than it is in this mail box. Now that I'm beginning to get a feel for B&W, I do believe I'll be sharing one perhaps every week unless I hear a demand for not so doing. ISO 200; 1/125 sec @ f /13.
