As I am waiting for some of my applications to churn away and render some video I was browsing through my catalog of photos from earlier this spring and came across this image. I was originally captivated by the beautiful flowering apple tree, the bright yellow rapeseed field, and the deep blue sky. Looking through my lens with the nice circular polarizer attached I was pretty sure I had a keeper.
Want I didn’t expect was that something looking so fantastic in color would strike me even more in black and white. Even though the image and wonderful saturated strong colors, someone in a more subdued presentation it looks it best.
I was glad I through this one in Silver Efex Pro 2 just to get a sense of what it would look like as a black and white. You never know until you try.
