    Captured this one a couple of weeks ago. Forgot all about it.
    Used the channel mixer to convert to b&w. Highpass sharpening.

    Wow, I love it in black and white!!!
    Do you have other frames from this series?
    The shadow in the foreground is a bit distracting for me.

    hey voods sublime shot - you have been holdin' back on us. High pass filter? You might have to explain that one a bit! I am enamoured by the blackness of the mountains - are they backlit by the sun setting? Its wicked cool mate!

    I can write up a little tutorial...
    but basically you duplicate the image into a new layer. Set the blending mode to overlay and run the high pass filter (filter > other > high pass) between 8-10 is what I use. Then adjust the opacity to your liking. I find between 20-40% to work with most of the photos.

    Wow, nice! I don't check this section often enough. It seems that I'm missing out. I like the b&w version more. The contrast really stands out in that one.

    The highpass filter gives it a nice look but, in my opinion, it also gives it kind of a plastic look. It looks a little too smooth as opposed to fine sharpness. Don't get me wrong, it's not a bad look just pointing out the difference I noticed.

    I love it. It looks just how the desert feels.
