Thanks. The picture was taken with my cellphone. No filters. The BW was a straight grayscale conversion in Irfanview. I did lighten the shadows in Elements first for both pictures and played with contrast, etc., and cropped.
Are there haloes? For some reason, I'm finding it hard to see. I did add sharpening when I reduce the resolution using Irfanview. I suppose I should not have checked that box. I'll keep that in mind for the next time. Thanks.-
I like both, conveying the cold of the season. You were very successful
with the conversion, the whole tonal range is there. The only thing that
bugs me is why did you have to sharpen to the point of generating this
so present haloing?
Thnaks. No polarizer. I just check "convert to grayscale" in PS Elements and got what you see. I did add a little shadow lightening for the bottom section, but that's about it.That's interesting.The gradient in the sky had me convinced that you used a polarizer.
Still a nice shot.
