Using HDR to create a B&W is another way to exploit the broad dynamic range that a HDR image gives me. This image was created from a three frame bracket set that I first processed in NIK HDR Efex Pro 2.
After tone mapping and adjusting the contrast I returned the image to Aperture 3 for final color adjustments and sharpening. After finishing it there I decided to use OnOne Perfect B&W to convert it to a monochrome image. I liked the composition and the way the conversion turned out which is why I’m sharing it with my readers.
