[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I don't convert many shots to black and white but after seeing the color version I thought this presentation was much more interesting. This is a just a small portion of the massive view you will get at the Grand View Point within Canyonlands National Park. I focused on this series of mesas to really give the viewer a sense of the amazing geology and contours of this beautiful place.

PP: Convert to B&W with Capture NX. Minimized a few hot spots and boosted contrast.

Great idea to convert this Mike. I have a very similar shot, and also was not crazy about the color.
You have given me an idea to try this.
beautiful focus and detail here.
Well done on the vertical comp.

Nice contrast and dynamic range control here. The successive scallops work well and lead the eye into the distance. TFS. Karin
