Here is a shot from the #NXNW trip to Moab a couple of months ago. It was shot at Arches National Park. That is Windows Arch in the background.
The moment I shot it, I knew I was going to convert it to BW.Â I usually spend some time with my BW conversions. In this case, however, all it took was a quick scroll through the presets in Nik Silver Efex Pro. Towards the bottom, the “Antique Plate II” preset jumped out at me. The century-old feel made the image for me.
The processing works great here. Looks like a scene from an early-century western. Nice work.
This is one of the presets in Silver Efex Pro that I have not had a great amount of success with. I tink I should have another go, maybe with some different subject matter, Looking at how well it has worked here.
