Hudson River Fog
« on: July 14, 2009, 09:38:18 AM »

After having offered my $.02 on several people's images I decided to put one of mine up here.  It was taken from the Spuyten Duyvel railroad staion looking north.  The fog had socked everything in and was now beginning to lift.  I like the shot, which was converted to B&W using Nik SilverEfex Pro.

Comments are welcome.

I really enjoy this nicely composed "mood" picture.  Well done!

Walter, Congratulations. That's one of the finest shots I've seen yet on LLS.

That conversion sure gets the job done.  It would be interesting to see what an "ordinary" conversion would look like from your standard photo editor.

Fine composition, Walter.  I would also love to see a subdued color version of this, as I'm wondering what's going on in the foliage to the left.

Very satisfying image. Nice work.

I suspect color might be a bit distracting. The BW is just fine.

Thanks for the responses.  There is very little that would be different using Photoshop's B&W conversion tools versus NIK's SilverEfex Pro.  But I find that the NIK software lets me work a bit more intuitively.  In addition, the left-hand column of previews showing how my image would look with different settings gives me a good way to pick a starting point.

I will try to locate the color rendition of the image and will post it when I do.  While I like it too, I think the color breaks the mood to a degree.  That is odd for me to say, as I usually go for big color statements in most of my work.
