    It's sure neat to view a scene with so many tones of b/whites... Wish I knew how to change my coloured shots with my program of PS7 into beautiful b/w masterpieces like this, Bruce...
Sincerely, Chris

Thank you, Christine:

I did something different with this picture. I used a polarizer, but I underexposed by 2 stops to get the clouds close to proper exposure and used a flash that at +2 EV to expose the front building.
I was experimenting. I used curves (in Photoshop) to bring the house on the left back from the shadows.

Bruce,it looks a lot like a shot with I R sensitive film. Did you use a red filter or how did you manage to duplicate the effect? If it was with a program, which one are you using?

No I didn't use IR film or program.

This is the steps I took.

1. -2 stops on camera, + 2 EV flash. You see the some flash reflection on the wood in the first building. I did this the bring out the clouds and building with out using a grad filter or HDR.

2. I lit up the building on the right.

3. I converted to B&W using Nik color effects pro.

4. I dodged and burned. I darkened the sage brush in front.

Hope that helps
