Dolomites Drama by AndreasResch Dolomites Drama by AndreasResch
Dolomites Drama

One of my few B&W images. I thought that the tonality here was more interesting than the colors.
Shot on our first day in the Dolomites - 10 minutes before we reached the shelter.

Incredibly sharp. Can you shed some light on your conversion process.

I used Silver Efex with one of the presets and then adjusted the areas a little by painting with white and black on a "Soft Light" layer.

Man that detail is impeccable in this shot. Your black and white tones are also a treat to look at because there really isn't any harsh lighting or shadows anywhere. I can only wish that I was there camped out. Maybe someday I can come over there and you can show me this place. Outta sight. Great job.

I've been there for the first time and from now on the Dolomites are on my travel list at least once a year.

this is jaw-dropping, literally, as in me staring at this awesome shot, with open mouth.

what I love here is the detail, and the play between light and shadow. And even though this shot is amongst the best of the best, the light and shadow interaction could be even better, with just a bit more contrast, especially on the dark side.

Thank you ... this one already is pretty hard processed and I wanted to keep a little of real situation in there. But I see that in either direction there are options to go.

what really amazes me is the rocks at the bottom, these hills get ALOT of nasty rock slides

Stunning light with great mood :) Digital bw conversions are very difficult with landscapes. It's hard to know which files will give you a good range of tones from bright whites to dark black, but you will master it quickly. And bw just has that surreal appeal to it.

I mostly swap to B&W when I see no chance for great colors but like the tonality and composition anyway - perfect example here.

I know exactly what you mean, I feel the same way. Sometimes b&w just works so much better though.
