Dunes

The sky may seem a bit overdramatic because actually it was a very pleasant day to cycle to the dunes today!
This was a fav before your name even appeared!

I love dramatic skies. need to come to you for lessons.
Which program would you suggest I start with?

@ninaganci First choose your sky... most important! Ideally you need to visualise how it could look. For making a black and white conversion I use Silver Efex Pro2.. it offers several presets which give me a quick preview of possibilities, but it also enables me to make overall incremental changes to contrast and structure as well as to brightness. Making changes to selected areas of the image is also very useful and fairly easy. I select a 'control point' and click on the area of the image I want to adjust. The control points are circles with adjustable diameters so, because the sky is long and narrow, I needed to choose 3 control points and adjusted each in turn, so as to cover the entire sky. Hope that helps.

The long grass brings good texture.
