Our Lake in Black and White

Photo Converted to Grayscale Image
I missed Digital Darkroom class last week! We spent the day going to medical appointments and by the time we were done, my mind was too full and too tired to remind me to go to class.

But I have the textbook, Scott Kelby's Adobe Photoshop Book for Digital Photographers, so I'm working on the lessons at home. This image is the result of converting a color picture to black and white using Camera Raw's HSL Grayscale function and then increasing the contrast using sliders and the adjustment brush. I must admit I like the sliders and the adjustment brush!

  1. Beautiful picture. Sorry you missed your class!

  2. I like the way it turned out. It's fun to experiment with editing photos like that.
