I took advantage of a local Facebook photography meet-up to get my ass out to shoot this past weekend. The location was Pawtucket Falls in Lowell, MA. The falls run over a dam onÂ rapidlyÂ flowing and particularly rocky section of the river.Â
While I got a few shots of the subdued sunset over the falls that I am happy with, this is my favorite from the night â€” a tight shot of water flowing over the dam. I went with a contrasty black and white approach using NIK SilverEfexPro 2. I leveraged a preset and applied a couple of tweaks.
I shot this with my Olympus OM-D E-M1 and the fantastic 12-40mm Pro Zoom lens with a B&W 10-Stop ND filter.
Wow Bob, this is really nice, B&W a great choice!
