About the Image(s)

I selected an image from Bond Falls in Michigan that I had previously worked on as a color image and within LR just did a conversion to B&W using a simple button click. I did nothing more, as I was trying to get the group's opinion as to whether this was sufficient, or if more work was required. Your thoughts?

Taken with a Canon 40D and Tamron 28-300mm zoom lens at 80mm, f/20, ISO 100 for 0.6 Sec.

I think you could brighten the reflections in the smooth water on the right.   Posted: 01/09/2022 14:05:48

I believe you are right, Allen. Thanks. That is the type of critique I was looking for.

I agree with Allen. The texture in the water above the falls is interesting and it's a pity to lose it. Bringing up the shadows in LR would do wonders. The highlights are spot on in my opinion.   Posted: 01/11/2022 15:05:36

Thanks, Henry. This is a useful experiment. I will boost the shadows.

I like the flowing waters, captured just right. But, I would like to see more detail in the shadow areas. And, I feel that there is too much foliage as it draws you eye away from the waters. So, in my revision I went back to the original and in my conversion lightened the shadow areas and cropped out much of the foliage.   Posted: 01/15/2022 06:20:36
