    This one is cool Ben! Usually Bodie is photographed under harsh midday light which really reflects bad off of all of that old wood. So this one will be a treat to work on.

    I like this scene a lot. I took it the scene was early morning (?) so I tried to go with that mood.
    My stab....

    In mine, I went for a B&W conversion at first and was going to do a B&W. But then I changed my mind, not because I didn't like the B&W, but just thought about doing this. :)

    I did a technique that I like for the old time look and that's where I use Opacity on a B&W layer and a color layer. In this case I set the Opacity to 63% on the B&W which allowed a small amount of color to seep through. At first thought someone might think, couldn't I just desaturate the color by 63% (or whatever amount) and still come up with the same look? And generally speaking no. Having the B&W as the foundation seems to help keep it's strong tonality while then adding a slight amount of color back into it.

    Anyway, it's something I use from time to time.

    Very cool Travis, that's almost what mine looked like until I decided to go with the false color look.

    its a fun idea, and can be learned from.
    I have been in a black and white mood lately...just don't have much in the way of images other than work to edit...

    It’s fun huh Doug? Not sure why, but there is a freedom to play around that we wouldn’t do to our own.
