One Four Challege – Nov Wk 2

Week 2 of the Nov One Four Challenge, this month being hosted by Nic (click here for details if you are new to the challenge)

I often find myself doing a BW conversion in this week, not entirely sure why.  For my lemur image I wanted to capture all the wonderful texture and tones in his fur and make him more of a highlight of the image.

To be honest I did this two weeks ago and have forgotten exactly what I did.  In essence I took the image into Nik Silver Efex and found a preset I liked – I think this is Fine Art Harsh.  Then I played with toning down the background, adding vignette and burn around the edges.

Annoyingly there is a bright white spot just above his head I didn’t notice at the time!

Because the lemur is so brightly lit against the now darker background, this image has more depth and interest.  The lemur looks almost regal on his throne 🙂

Like it?  Don’t like it?  Tell me about it!

    I’ve always been a big fan of really contrasty B&W, I love how the lemur is almost glowing in his regal-ness. 😀

      Yes I was pretty chuffed esp as I stood there for probably about 15 minutes just watching them play and then this guy just climbed down, had a sniff and assumed the post LOL
