From the Danube, I took this photo of the Liberty Statue:
I do really like the colors and light in the evening sky but I was curious to try a black and white edit:
To achieve this edit I applied the Luminar Look, Dramatic Landscapes B&W, then made additional adjustments to the whites, blacks, and shadows sliders. You can leave a comment below about this particular edit. I do think I will be making a color version eventually as well.
Added to Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge, Clouds.
The Made with Luminar Series
This image is part of a project I am calling Made with Luminar. What the images in this series have in common is the software used to edit them, Luminar 3. As with my usual blog posts particulars of the camera settings can be found in the caption below the image. I’ll then explain what other filters and edits have been applied, often mentioning what layer and therefore order that they were applied. The text of these posts include any Luminar “Looks” that have been applied to the photo. Each look is a series of presets that are applied to the photo. Where applicable I will mention what changes I have made to any of the looks. A full explanation of looks is available here on their website, https://skylum.com/luminar/user-guides/chapter-14-working-with-luminar-looks
You can assume basic edits have been applied. My most common edits are cropping, detail enhancement, and vignette. Specific questions or thoughts on the image are welcome in the comment section below.

The colour version is beautiful, but I still think the black and white version shows the drama and the intensity of the light.
Thanks very much. I am sure you have similar photo files in your collection, ones that work for various reasons in both black and white and color treatments.

Wonderful clouds for this week. Thanks so much for playing along 😀
Thank you Cee.
I like them both. I like the split tone quality of the first one.
Thanks very much.
