I took this image on a gray day in January. The scene was attractive enough for me to park and walk up the road in sub freezing weather. Looking at it I thought it might make a decent black and white image.
My Lightroom skills are still weak but I worked hard to make a dramatic B&W image out of this. The result is ok but just. So I went back to the original RAW file from my Panasonic LX7 and worked a little harder, using the HSL (Hue Saturation and Luminance) tool to brighten some areas, darken others. Looks to me like this image is just a better candidate for keeping the color than it is for a B&W conversion.
What do you think?
