Boomer, Steve and Tammy this one is for you!

A quick conversion of the last post Photographers QUSEST, using Topaz Black and White.

I wasn’t exactly over the moon with the result – at the last second decided to add a splash of Simplify which won me over in an artful sort of way.

Let me know your thoughts 😉

Do You See What I See…

  1. Yes, I do like the B+W! You’ve done a nice job with the conversion. Looking again at the original, I just wish the tree could have been separated from the background a bit more. Could you have used a smaller aperture or is the ground too close?
    Either way I still like the shot!

    1. Glad you liked the conversion. I see what you mean about the separation between the tree and background; I didn’t think of using different aperture, that is something I will be more thoughtful about in the future. Maybe I could take this back into Topaz and smooth out some areas to create more dimension. Thanks for the input!

  2. I too like the B&W…as far as separation is concerned, a bit of judicious masking and selectively boosting the foreground tree and a subtle blur of the background would probably do the trick….good luck !!!!! lol

  3. Another idea for separation…erase the smoothing effect off the branches so it is nice and crisp and leave the smoothing effect on the background. I really like this in black and white w/ the processing…looks very artistic. I can see this on a canvas!
