This is a handful of post-processed pictures taken down at the local nature reserve. None of them are as-taken - all have been treated in some way, whether it was a straight conversion to black and white, or a more exotic and complex treatment in either Nik Silver FX or Nik Color FX. They're presented here at 2000 pixels on the long side.
Personally I love to fool with black and white, toning, frames, vignettes, etc. All of this can lend an additional horizon to what may otherwise be a fairly plain, even rather boring, colour pic.
