You've preserved both the interesting texture of the water and still conveyed the power of the current running downstream. Nice monochrome conversion shows off the dramatic cloud structures too.

I think it was more than achieved! The whole thing is DRAMAtic with a capital DRAMA. I've mentioned before that I am not a big fan of milky water but I do think there is a compromise, and this is a good compromise.
Middle name Frankie...too funny. I think the original sky is quite gorgeous, and if I'm being totally truthful, the one in the b&w distracts me a little from the stream and rocks.davechinn wrote:Since you asked and since I actually forgot, because I processed this towards the end of September and possibly had a senior moment. Yes, the sky is real in the original, but not with the B&W image. After taking another look at the original I cannot figure out why I chose to replace it. Just wondering though, is your middle name Frankie? Here is the color original version and you can judge for yourself if the cloud replacement was needed. Sorry, but I had no intention to deceive anyone, it was an oversight and memory lose. Dave
