Another good black and white shot. Deep blue skies become black or near black and a red or orange filter effect in Photoshop accentuates the light contrasting rock. I recommend plug ins for these edits. You can do it manually with curves and adjustment layers but it’s technically laborious. Plug ins don’t achieve anything you can’t do yourself but they compress complex operations into a click of a mouse with some slider adjustments. Simple is better. Which is also the aesthetic effect of black and white rendering.
