Let’s return to Grand Cayman now (wish I could) and to that reflective pond at the Queen Elizabeth II Botanical Park. When we last visited this image I had converted it to a somewhat spooky/enchanted black and white version. The first image here is almost like the original color one except for a bit of a brown haze added to give it a softer look. After the blur and brown haze were added, I added a layer mask and brushed back in some of the original color to show through particularly on the water.
And here we have the original capture; the difference between the two isn’t that severe but there none the less. So tell me, which do you prefer: B&W, brown haze, or original…and why? Just curious 🙂
