Look Up - Texture Tuesday

This week we "look up" at Kim Klassen's Texture Tuesday. I took a photo of the Navajo Trail in Bryce Canyon National Park I posted here a few weeks ago, but this time it looks a bit different.

Here's the "recipe":
- Levels and hue/saturation adjustment
- new layer
- gradient map, turn to black and white
- layer mask, brush back the red color of the rock by using the brush tool
- "kk_elevate" in blending mode multiply at 100%

I love black and white images with some color. Wonderful to play around with.
What about you? Do you like black and white pictures?

The perspective & the dark trees against the warm colors of the rock / cliff is very impressive! I am a novice with B&W - hoping that I makes some progress with "learning by doing".

Wow, wow, wow! You must have been in the bottom of a canyon. Spectacular shot and nice processing.

Yes, I love black & white photos with some color in them ... in fact I used to do that a lot and haven't for a long time. Thanks for reminding me how cool they are. Love your picture ... would never have thought of doing it that way ... very clever :)

Gorgeous "looking up" shot, Carola. Your art is reaching new heights all the time. Wonderful to see.
And, to answer your question: Some of my favorite photos of all time are black and white images.

Carola, I do like black and white for certain images, but I always have trouble letting the color go... has to be just the right image. And I do like the combination!
