Lovely soft tones and I like the way the tree is framed by the two fences.

very graphic b+w image, looks cold, the opposite to here...
9 Feb 2011 11:17am
Wow! Most interesting! How did you achieve this look?

@Anita: I adjusted levels, did some heightening and strengthening by dodging and burning, turned it black and white with Silver Efex Pro, and added a tonal filter with Color Efex Pro, and probably sharpened it here and there. (Luckily I could remember how I got there. Usually, by the time I finish developing an image it's pretty hard to recreate what I did. ;-) I always appreciate your comments Anita.
Great shot! Nice texture and tones...

Super effect here Dulcie! Looks like an ink sketch! Well done! ;-)

Hi Dulcie! It's good to see you out in the country again. I remember very tasteful shots of barbed wire and leaves. I love the ghostliness of this image, and that broken fence rail on the right is so perfect. You have a special gift for black and white, I think.

excellent. fine tones
9 Feb 2011 4:26pm
It's a total tangled mess, but somehow the toning rescues it - Nik Silver Efex?
9 Feb 2011 4:33pm
@Curly: YUP ! :-)
Nicely processed !
9 Feb 2011 5:06pm

NIce shot !
9 Feb 2011 8:39pm
That's beautiful. Love the toning.
9 Feb 2011 9:04pm
Dulcie: Thanks for explaining the process. The result is just lovely--a nice mix of darks and lights, sharp and soft, textured and smooth. I hope you try more of this. I know what you mean about forgetting all the steps taken in post processing!
9 Feb 2011 9:28pm
Nice contrast and I like the depth of field here - probably needed due to the many elements in the frame. Nicely done!
9 Feb 2011 9:31pm
BTW, Dulcie, there are color filters and tones right in SilverEfex Pro..... (just read your edit explanation)
9 Feb 2011 9:33pm
really wonderful processing!
9 Feb 2011 9:37pm
beautiful compo and processing ! love it !
10 Feb 2011 9:38am
joli post traitement.
11 Feb 2011 10:51pm
an image after my own heart...great composition, again...and i read your workfow D.,...since you have color efex pro, try hitting an image with 'tonal contrast' as a final step to kinda bring up detail and sharpen areas where appropriate for your work...amazing filter...
12 Feb 2011 8:41am
Opression ! great !
