At Sea – 08Dec2014 in B&W

The sunset photos were nice . . . but I wondered how they would look in various treatments of B&W. I used onOne Suite, Topaz Suite, DxO Film Pack, and Silver EFex Pro 2.

    The third one is really nice.

      Thanks. That’s probably the closest to a straight B&W conversion, along with the first one. The others are all me playing around with other ‘looks’.

    I think B&W is a good choice for sunsets. It not just the color of the light but the quality as well that makes the conversion successful. I especially like the first shot for the texture in the water.

      It works when the clouds and the rays are fairly visible. I do like all of these in B&W, but then I would not have added them here if not. The first (both in color and in B&W) is not the favorite of many, but I like the same thing you mention . . . the water and the reflections playing on it.

  3. They’re all great, reminded me of Max Dupain (look him up Emilio) he was a great, if not the greatest classic B?W photographer, these may interest an intrepid photographer like you>

      Thanks for the links. I’d not heard of Dupain before, but then I am not a student of the art ; just a hobbyist.

      Thanks for the lofty comparison, although I have a long way to go before I approach those heights.

  4. These are great in B&W! Makes the light and dark more dramatic! Also, makes me notice the textures and the motion even more!
    And the bluishness (not a word!) in that last one is stunning!
    HUGS!!! :-)

    Cyanotype! Wow, have not heard that word since I use to copy blueprints of drawings when working for a general contractor. That took me back a while. Anyway, I really like that photo and the one above it. Lots of drama.
