City View

This is a very early morning view from a hotel window in Weifang, Shandong Province, China. I thought this picture had a monochrome feel to it and was interested to see how it would translate into black and white: of the Black and White LightRoom presets I liked this the best (it is called “Look 4”)ksm20160929-cbw-view-01

However, I think that the “Antique Light” toned preset works to give a better sense of the golden light of dawn:

Candid Kids

Here are a few candid pictures of kids from my archives for Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge. All of these pictures were taken in color. I experimented with the black and white presets in Adobe Lightroom. At first I wondered why they had so many, but each picture looked best with a different setting. This is the first time I have experimented with the black and white settings in Lightroom.
