Yes, dear readers, I had to do a Black and White conversion on yesterdays image:) When I was composing this image, the style of Robin Whalley – Lightweight Photographer – was in my mind. He does many lovely seascapes and also fabulous B&W images.
This has been processed in Nik Silver Efex with the Full Spectrum preset and then tweaked brightnes, contrast and structure up a smidge.
What I love about B&W is how it brings out details you don’t always see in the colour, in the above image the water rippling over the sand is much more obvious, and in the far distance to the left you can see the Pier and possibly some tiny people 🙂
You can also see the coast line swooping off to the north more obviously at the horizon as well.
I’m worried the clouds feel a little dark and oppressive in this version, but there was so much more I liked about it, so it was the one that stayed 🙂
Best of all, notification arrived in my email that my Lee Filter parcels are on their way, hopefully arrive soon!
As always, feedback and comments are welcome 🙂
