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. Thanks Carol, much appreciated!

  2. 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.

  3. really beautiful!

    congrats on adopting the new pups (and celebrating snow!) thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment! :)

    1. Thank you very much. When I saw you had commented on Pat's blog I could tell you had good tastes :-) All the best.
