What do our preferences say about us?

An incredible hole in the sandstone at Arches National Monument. Nasim Mansurov has a similar image at the beginning of his article on using Nik software to do B&W images (https://photographylife.com/how-to-take-black-and-white-pictures). Quite good. I though I'd use my own image from another location at Arches to see how well the program did. This is my first try ever at the program. Any thoughts on us and B&W?

    • The BW flattens out a bit and, as our friend Frank noted in a thread on 5280 Lens Mafia, it pulls the focus off the rocks and into the clouds. The BW has a distinct epic Old West vibe, though, that’s compelling, even though my personal biases toward pretty colorful things calls me the other way.

  1. Thank you both. The comments make a lot of sense. I could have backed off a particular function and made the rock detail less dominant. As it is, your eye does fall to the clouds for relief from the complexity of the rocks that is not found in the color version.
    Good thoughts. Thanks again.
