I was working on a black and white conversion in Lightroom this morning, this is the result. When I originally took this shot, I knew it was going to be converted at some point. There was nothing really special about the light but I was interested in the textures and contrast. Still not sure about the little black cloud but it adds a nice tension.

I’ll post a follow up of a before and after so you can see what a dramatic difference a good black and white conversion can be. It can be found here:
