My first thought was that this would be an ideal candidate for a black and white conversion but I've attached the colour version too as I like the contrasting rust and green colours.

I'm undecided as to which is the best version and I'd love to know the opinions of others.

Thanks for taking the time to look.

Your quite right Elaine, I think your B+W is excellent you have a good tonal range with nice deep darks and bright but not over exposed lights.
However the colour image brings elements which the B+W cannot show with a straight conversion, such as the colour vanes in the rocks and the delicate colour changes in the seaweed.

To show this in a B+W you need software such as Photoshop or Silver Efex which allow you to adjust colour channels after conversion. This would then allow you to highlight the vanes and colour changes in a particular colour range.

Excellent image

Wonderfully different, I love the whole image, it somehow reminds me of a graphite drawing in an old sketch pad...

Thanks for your votes and comments Guys,

I'll work on the image a bit more Eric trying the different colour channels in Elements - haven't used them before but now I know what they do I'll experiment.

Thanks David (doverpic), also Nathan...thanks for your comment - I had hoped that this shot would be a little bit different Grin

Thanks again for your votes everyone.
