Guam 2015 and MM 2-15: Tumon Bay in Monochrome

In my previous posting I showed a few photos I took one day last April from the Fiesta Resort on Tumon Bay. In some of those photos I was facing north and the views showed the Nikko Hotel and Two Lovers Point in the background. In another photo I was facing south toward the Hilton Hotel. Here is another view toward the Hilton that I thought would look nice in monochrome. It will be my entry to Leanne Cole’s Monochrome Madness Challenge this week.

For the past couple of months I have been experimenting with using Nik Silver Efex Pro for converting color to monochrome. But for this week’s Monochrome Madness entry I decided to process the entire image in Lightroom. It was pretty easy. I just moved a handful of sliders (contrast, highlights, shadows, whites, blacks and clarity) to the extreme right or left and then gradually moved them back toward the center until I was satisfied with the result.

How about dropping by Leanne’s website to see what other photographers are doing in monochrome this week?

    Nice. The clouds, shadows, and back lighting all work well together in this.
