As I stated on my original posting of this shot earlier today, I was going to pass it along to my friend GP to see what he might do with it. He has Adobe Lightroom and NIK Tools, which I haven't purchased yet and I like to see what his eye sees in my shots. I was careful *not* to suggest what he might try out with them, although black & white after other processing was certainly in my mind for this particular image. These are the results.
I think I've got to get this guy to be my partner and get us to start selling prints.
Feel free to tell me (and him) which one(s) you like best.
