Converting colour to Black and White
This is a photograph that was converted to BW; the original colour photo is below. To do this I used the Channel Mixer and set it to Greyscale and then adjusted the percent values for red, green , blue to 30, 60, 10. I used the Auto function on Levels to adjust the tone. Then I applied another Levels with a gradient mask so that I could bring more tone out in the sky without affecting the lower part of the image. I used a Curves adjustment also with a gradient mask to brighten the lower part of the image.
I would like to know what you think...
