For Leanne’s Monochrome Madness Challenge this week I have decided to submit another photo from that day we spent last month at Tarague Beach on Guam’s north coast. I’ll also show you a couple of color versions of the same photo.
Here’s the original raw photo with minor post-processing revisions using Lightroom:
I then enhanced the Lightroom raw file with Nik Color Efex Pro to obtain this version:
I then brought the tif file from Color Efex Pro over to Silver Efex Pro to produce the monochrome version. Preset # 036 – Antique Plate II – was used in Silver Efex Pro. I played with the Silver Efex Pro sliders a bit and then went back to Lightroom to export the jpeg file.
Which version do you prefer?
