25 Nov 14. Today's B&W image is one I'll share with you for several days. Tomorrow I'll share the color version. As you see it today, I have taken it as a RAW image from the camera, brought it into a RAW format reader, adjusted the color balance and applied a lens correction, something that is done for every image. Then, in a digital editing program, added a B&W gradient adjust layer and on top of that a curves layer which was used in conjunction with the gradient layer to maximize the contrast in the image. That's it. Keep this image for a while as I'll use it to illustrate how different approaches to creating a B&W image result in vastly different results. You may also want to keep the color version for reference in comparing how the colors are represented as grey scale representations.
