A very interesting piece of wood Ian with lots of lovely textures. I am sure you were right to turn it into a b and w image.

I have uploaded a mod where I have had a bit of a go with the burn and dodge tools to try to increase the contrast in the shot.

Thanks Catherine, I did try a bit of Burn & Dodge, I think I was a bit hesitant though.

Hello, Ian. I have always had a love and fascination for old wood, its twists and turns and grain. I like this image a lot and, from one who isn't keen on mono, I have to admit to liking your conversion too. I might have cropped some from the left, perhaps about a quarter of the width, concentrating attention on the most interesting area of the wood. Catherine's modification has brought out the detail that I love to see. This wood has a lot of potential for closeups of that detail. Your image puts it into context and is more of a "scene", but getting lower and closer to your subject would, I feel sure, provide some amazing abstracts with strong lines and textures. I can see faces within its characteristics. Your light was good, and shows the details well.

If you would like to increase contrast and detail locally use the Clone tool upon itself in Overlay mode at about 20%, you also stand a good chance of not burning the highlights out.

Works a treat Smile
