In this image, I thought that the structure of the components were quite simplistic and would lend themselves to a monochrome treatment. I did brighten the body of the Lesser Yellowlegs as it was in deep shadow. I used Photoshop CC and Nik Software Viveza 2 to selectively brighten and the black and white conversion was done in Silver Efex Pro 2. I finished the frame with an Ambrotype toning in honour of the yellowlegs.

In the best light…

  1. Very nice shot and you are right about applying the monochrome treatment. Thanks for sharing.
