Thought I'd have a go at converting one of my favourite shots into Mono.

My original image was cropped, converted to mono using chanel mixer and then I played around with the dodge and burn tools.

As suggested on the original upload by Guy (phillips), I've cloned out the distracting hand painted name of the white boat in the foreground.

Thanks for looking.
