This is not my original cold, I had to down size it alot for this website to view it well this is the shot just switched to monochromatic. The one I edited has a lot more contrast and deeper blacks, I applied a graduated nd filter to the sky to bring out the clouds, the leading lines and shapes screamed b+w, the fully edited version did not look right attached here, maybe I need to use a photo hosting site and post it right in the post.
I prefer the shot in B&W (though I may have processed it a bit differently)...either way, thanks for sharing! Beautiful place.
I saw in one of the posts you do some photography yourself, how deep are you? My editing is done in Photoshop raw and silver effects when there actually edited lol thanks for the reply.
I'd hotlink to a high-res version on your SmugMug/Flickr/Zenfolio/Imgur account, really. Way less downsizing necessary, and Flickr and Imgur can be had for free. I think 500px allows free accounts too, not sure.
As far as "how deep" I am...eh...it depends. I've been on a long photography dry spell lately (shot a wedding in June and it kinda had me burnt out on all things photography once I finished culling and processing over 400 "keepers". That said, I'm hoping to get back into the swing of things this spring. I do have two rolls of Tri-X I need to develop too (though one is probably ruined due to my own stupidity).
For my editing, I use a ACR/Ps (CS5) process. I'm using a D300, so CS5 is still good for the files I'm outputting. If/when I eventually upgrade to the D500, I'm not sure what I'll do.
