Shades of Gray
(Mississippi River)
I created this image with the idea of featuring the important elements of the Mississippi River, the Crescent City Connection (Greater New Orleans Bridge) and the mid-morning sky. I first processed this image as a color image and I felt nothing. But, when I processed it in Nik Software’s Silver Efex Pro 2 as a black and white image it elevated my interest to an acceptable level. When an image is not working for you in post-processing you should consider using another approach.
You can learn more about the Crescent City Connection at Wikipedia.
