This is a B&W conversion of yesterday's HDR version. I used Silver Efex.
NIKON D300 1/200 second F/7.1 ISO 400 70 mm
May be this is what its meant to be. I like this one best

Love this much Jack!! Well done!
6 Mar 2010 5:35am
I'm a fan of the last one, color HDR.
6 Mar 2010 5:46am
I think I like this the best as well. but I do love bw. It's the way the fog works and the multi toned trees. And that car is suddenly less important. :)
6 Mar 2010 5:58am
superbe traitement !
6 Mar 2010 6:00am
I love the different processing you have done on the one view. Great work.

Good morning master Jack! Good morning in B / W! Lovely image! It has a special charm and completely changes the percepció of who is watching!
All paracer mystery tinged with an unreal appearance. The car is the only item that puts you at the time. Wonderful master Jack! Happy weekend. Many kisses, Adela

@Fonts: Your kisses will make it a great weekend.

or flip a coin!!

Wow, one of my fav at your place, the quality of this monochrome is unique !
6 Mar 2010 9:18am
Oh my! I love it in B&W! I like the mood.
6 Mar 2010 9:34am
I do not know the one that I prefer... A very beautiful b&w !
6 Mar 2010 10:25am
The mood is fantastic, would be a great book cover for a romantic thriller - I think, I like this best of your hitherto trilogy :-) But all three are really really fantastic :-)

im not usually a fan of HDR but this is great.

@Thomas White: My favorite use of HDR is for B&W conversions.
Very beautiful image is sublime!
6 Mar 2010 12:19pm
My preference goes to the first version, because of the colors and the fact that the fog plays more of a role.
6 Mar 2010 12:28pm
WOW this B&W version is so dramatic and focuses our eye to see more of the detail and not to be distracted by the colors, If I had to choose one over the other would be a tough call for me,
6 Mar 2010 12:37pm
Très belle image... mais je préfère nettement celle en couleur.
6 Mar 2010 12:38pm
This is so beautiful! So many tones! And the fog is just perfect...
6 Mar 2010 2:08pm
each version seems to get better for me
6 Mar 2010 2:49pm
Oooooh! This one is wonderful too! each one is so distinct- I love all of them.
6 Mar 2010 2:57pm
Awesome shot! Love the effect!
6 Mar 2010 3:10pm
Of course it's very powerful in mono but however is still prefer the color version.
6 Mar 2010 3:11pm
Very beautiful. I'm getting a new appreciation for HDR.
6 Mar 2010 3:52pm
@Steve Rice: I prefer HDR much more for B&W conversions than for color. When it comes to color, I rarely use it except to deal with a range of light that exceeds the capture capacity of my camera.
Wonderful processing , almost hard to believe it is HDR ! Love it much , much more than color versions !

@MARIANA: Generally the only color HDR photographs that I like are the ones where you can't tell that it's HDR. However, I respect the right of each photographer to do what pleases him or her. When I comment on HDR photographs, I do it relative to the photographer's goals.
The conversion worked beautifully......i'd like to see it, using the crop from yesterday....could that be tomorrow's version?????
6 Mar 2010 4:41pm
@Susan: This is my favorite use of HDR. Tomorrow's shot is a wide angle shot taken with my D700 and 24-70mm lens.
ah yes, the black and white I was waiting for :)
6 Mar 2010 4:56pm
Like this Hdr B&W version. Contrasts are excellent, almost like we put an orange or red filter (if my memory is good... ) when we used argentic.
6 Mar 2010 5:03pm
I don't usually like HDR but it works here. It gives the b+w an ice slightly bizarre look.
6 Mar 2010 5:10pm
That is the picture I wanted to see from day one of this series =)
My first thoughts were bw with this. I love how the details of the trees come through, nicely processed!
6 Mar 2010 5:56pm
Wonderful Treatment for a dramatic mood...........5 stars,Sir !!!
6 Mar 2010 7:17pm
This gives it much more atmosphere - how interesting it is to compare these shots.
6 Mar 2010 7:37pm
How the fog moves - this makes this B/W to photo especially atmospheric
6 Mar 2010 8:01pm
What did I say, Jack..... for me, this will be the one. Mono rocks here and the tonal variances are stunning.
6 Mar 2010 8:19pm
"Okay," she says reluctantly, "I may not like HDR, but I think this shot REALLY works.
It has a wonderful mood and I thoroughly enjoy it." :-)
6 Mar 2010 9:19pm
@Dulcie: That's because it is a conversion to B&W. For me, by and large, the only HDR color photographs that work are the ones where you can't tell that it is HDR. And that can be done. Moreover, some of the new software such as HDR PhotoStudio 2 creates a more realistic look than does Photomatix. Plus, if you know what you are doing, you can create a realistic look with Photomatix.
A fine image made more unusual and appealing by your special processing. Fine job of preparing an eye-catching image.
6 Mar 2010 10:16pm
I really like the B&W version, Jack. Very mysterious. Nice work.
6 Mar 2010 10:23pm
This is great in black and white also!
7 Mar 2010 2:25am
The HDR looks a bit to heavy for me. I do not do HDR but enjoy it if you can not tell it has been done.
Either was nice scene ....
7 Mar 2010 3:26am
Interesting, I like it.
OK, I got the bloggie thingie integrated to the web site. Urah! Do drop by and leave a comment if you get a chance. Just click the usual MontereyJohn, I linked to the blog. Thnx, John
7 Mar 2010 3:58am
This one is a winner. :-)
7 Mar 2010 4:30am
Nice work. It makes it look colder.
7 Mar 2010 4:42am
This is my favorite! difficult choice between 3 and 4.
7 Mar 2010 9:30am
A tighter crop and I think I just like Silver Efex images anyway.
