I noticed that most of the B&W landscape images get shared over in the Still Live/B&W/Experimental Section of the forum...and while those are great threads that I enjoy...they are not just landscapes...and I am a big fan of Black & White Landscapes and after a search, can't find a dedicated thread here in this section...so why not...share your BEST...not all of them....not the snapshots...but the ones that you think are your BEST...maybe share a bit about the conversion, what made you go black and white...
Heaving: Shot last week on my second trip to Death Valley. I put the camera into B&W mode for the duration of this session so that I could see the tones differently. The tans of the mud stood out from the rust colors of the surrounding dirt and the mountains. I spent more time dodging and burning the cracks to emphasize them.
From Mt. Rainier December 2018. I kept shooting even after the glow of sunset was gone from the snow. This made for a more even tone in the snow and it stood out from the sky better this way. I couldn't bring myself to convert one with that glow to black and white, that was part of the story, but once the color was faded, I was thinking black and white all the way. The snow dusting the dark evergreen trees also provided nice contrast and broke up the darkness of the trees.
Share your best...and enjoy...maybe we can all learn a little about each other's process for shooting Black & White Landscapes.
