Natural landscapes: summer at the lake
ENJOYING BOW LAKE, BANFF NATIONAL PARK, ALBERTA
When this lake, high up in the Canadian Rocky Mountains, is still when I’m driving past, I just have to stop and see what’s possible creatively. The full-colour version is pleasing (you can see it here: http://bit.ly/BowLakeSummer), but to my eyes this approach is far more dramatic. Love how computer software like Photoshop makes it easy to convert a photo to black-and-white, while keeping part of the scene in colour.

I’m speechless, Frank! This is an amazing shot. I love everything about it.
I’m not a great fan of selective color, but this seems to work nicely. And the contrast between the black and white of your image is perfect!
Thanks Emilio. I put the full-colour version on 500px.
The link you gave me is not working. But I’ll find you!
This is an exceptional reflection image and I love the touch of red. Just great, Frank!
