West Virginia in Black and White Nik Silver Efex Pro2

This weekend was a get away weekend for me with a small group of photographers from the Baltimore Camera Club. When reviewing images today, I processed a group of them in black and white. I really like using the color filters in Nik Silver Efex Pro 2, as if using filters on your lens with Black and White film..they can dramatically pop a black and white image, shifting tonalities in a certain color spectrum. When making images in bright sun light the filters can really enhance the image during processing.

I saw the barn above from the road we were traveling on, and wanted to see if I could get a shot of it so, I quickly turned down a dirt road...and yes it was on private property but not signed "No Trespassing", as many of the West Virginia dirt roads are! Moments later we were confronted by the owners and after some conversation they agreed we could make images on their land. There was also an old house which was their grandparents home, that had fallen into a state of disrepair so with their blessings we made some images of the house as well. Thanks!

We ended the day of shooting and driving, as the sun was setting on Seneca Rocks. It was a long but fun day!
