In the Mood

Lake Crescent, Olympic National Park; Washington (WA); USA

I don’t typically post black and white photos… but I am intrigued by the world of monochrome images and would like to do more. So, here is one feeble attempt. The mist hanging around lake Crescent that morning was wonderful, and we spent hours photographing this location.

I used a long shutter speed to remove distracting ripples from the water, and then converted the image to black and white with NIK Software’s SilverEFex Pro. My goal was to create a dark, moody scene. Once the conversion was complete, I made targeted adjustment to the highlights and shadows in Photoshop.
