MM 3-33 Another Moss-covered Tree

For this week’s Monochrome Madness Challenge I have decided to submit another shot of a moss-covered tree from our hike a couple of weeks ago in the Purisima Creek Redwoods Open Space Preserve near Half Moon Bay, California.

I processed this photo in Lightroom and then brought it over to Nik Silver Efex Pro 2 where I applied the 030 Film Noir 1 preset and then went to the Film Types  sensitivity section and moved the yellow slider to the right (+28%) and all other colors all the way to the left (-100%).

Then I went back to the original raw file in Lightroom and brought that over to Nik Color Efex Pro 2 for final post-processing. Here’s the color version:
