MM 3-49 Bristlecone Pine

For this week’s Monochrome Madness Challenge I decided to take one of the photos from my last posting about our 1994 visit to Kodachrome Basin State Park in Utah (see here — it’s photo # 7 of 10) and convert it to monochrome.  It’s one of the park’s ancient bristlecone pine trees in front of a wall of redrock.

I took this picture in 1994 on Kodachrome slide film and scanned it to my computer in 2014. Last week I post-processed it with both Lightroom and Nik Color Efex Pro. The other day I went back to the Lightroom file before it was further processed by the Nik Color Efex Pro software and edited it in Nik Silver Efex Pro instead.

Australian photographer Leanne Cole hosts the weekly Monochrome Madness Challenge. Drop by her website on Thursdays (Wednesdays in North America and Europe) to see what photographers from all over the world are doing in monochrome these days. Then, if you are so inclined, follow Leanne’s directions for submitting your monochrome photo to next week’s Challenge. Next week is the first week of the month and the theme is Culture.

    Nice job,my friend! For photo editing and processing I have been using Affinity Photo by Serif and obtained some outstanding results.
