My personal journey of photography...
Good idea to try...a agree with you....maybe with a colored filter in front of the lens you could have a better result.
I'm not using colours filter these days unless it's a B&W film.You can easily simulate it with RAW converter like Adobe LightRoom.Also, I always soot in colour, so not loosing any opportunity, you never know you want in colour as well as B&W from same shot.Do you think it need more contrast?
Yeah, shooting in raw there's no need of filters.. the only one I'm still using is a polarizer, it really makes the difference for a great sky..I think if you adjust 'recovery' in lightroom, increase the hightlights and decrease the lights in the tone curve maybe you can enhance a little the sky.. (not sure anyway ;) )
Cheers, Ruben.Yes, my active duty filter is CPL and ND8. Thanks for comment about adjustment, I will play little more with this image.I might also try some of those colour filter preset.Ben
If we forget the technicalities of conversion, considered on its own B&W merits, this is beautiful grayscale image conveying the feel of nature and photographic moment with a finely tuned graphical expression. It also conveys the pure joy of photography!Cheers!
Thanks, Lachezar.I'm comparing two versions after not seeing them (well,try to) for few days, I kind a favour to this B&W version over the colour one, now.
