I feel at times I need to take a more in-depth look at black and white photography. I pretty much process all of my shots in color and never even think of what they would look like as a B&W. The first time I saw this picture after it made it’s way through photomatix, I thought that this one would need to be a black and white shot due to the harshness of the sun. I threw on a B&W filter and liked the look of it initially, but then I began to feel like it could use just a little bit of color on the tree for a little extra attention. And this is what I came away with. Something definitely a little different than my usual but I must say I’m happy with the results.
