Peaks and Spires of Liberty Bell Mountain and Early Winter Spire (Black & White)

Peaks and Spires of Liberty Bell Mountain and Early Winter Spire (Black & White)

Standing in the parking lot to the Washington Pass Observation Site and looking southeast to these amazing peaks...well, it's awe inspiring! I'm also very glad I went with a friend's thoughts as we continued the drive along the North Cascades Highway. The rest of the image for composing enough, and metering was just a matter of finding the right exposure in Manual mode.

As I looked at this image, trying to determine what I wanted to do with it, I decided to try out this "Ansel Adams Look" I'd read about in Jason Odell's book on Capture NX2. The idea is to work with the LCH editor, making some adjustments, and then use a Black point and White point before converting to black & white. Before converting to black & white, I used a Polarization CEP filter to bring out a much deeper...or darker look to the skies above which came out even more after the conversion in Capture NX2.
