Baxter State Park – Part 5: An Interpretation In Black & White

The previous Baxter State Park post was all about color. This one is all about a Black & White interpretation of the park. All of the images in this post were originally captured in color as multiple HDR images, converted using Photomatix to a Tiff file, and then converted to Black & White using Photoshop’s Channel Mixer to create a custom Black & White image. Each image was then Dodged and Burned to accentuate various features. For me, the key to a great Black & White image is to be sure to capture a great color image – There are no short cuts!! Enjoy!!
