Nice image - the black sky really makes it great. Do you Photoshop your photos?

Hi Tim,

Thanks for the comment.

Yes, most of the time, I "Photoshop" my photos, which are shot in color. To go to B&W I'll either apply a channel-mixer layer, going to monochrome, or I'll use a multi-layer method from Russell Brown which uses a combination of hue-saturation layers. Both of these methods give you the ability to adjust the light and dark of your image based on specific colors. This means that you can isolate the sky, based on the blues, and darken it independently from the rest of the image.

They're great methods and they really increase the control you have over your image!
