Barnegat black and white

I don't convert to black and white often, but when Nik color efex pro had a b&w filter by default and it looked good I decided to dump it into silver eFex pro and give it a go!


For both images I used the filter that had high structure and contrast. I also dialed in a red filter to make the sky pop and slightly lowered the structure. When editing them in color I used a polarization filter. Not a substitute for a real polarizer, but like an ass I left it in the car :-)

How about that sky?

  1. They look great in b&w -- I especially like the top frame with the larger lighthouse. I've heard so many good things about Barnegat so I'll have to make it a point to get down there sometime now that I'm on this coast.
