Week 42 GPlus Project 52 Black & White

Week 42 Black & White Trinity Church
Trinity Church
Our theme for week 42 was an easy one for me, black & white. The difficulty was finding a good subject for it. Immediately a couple came to mind; one I have shot before, the Trinidad Memorial Lighthouse, just not with the intention of converting to black & white, and one I've seen from a distance but never up close. Luckily they were both in the same town so I thought I could do both and choose which I liked better. It turns out that there are only so many ways to shoot the lighthouse, and I wasn't seeing anything which interested me, so I went in search of subject number two, a small church in town. This town is very small and for the life of me I couldn't find it, but thanks to Google I was able to locate and get some shots done before the sunset entirely. I lucked out with the clouds thinning in areas to give a little more contrast in the background.
I had originally thought I'd shoot with the "Mono" setting from my camera, but it wasn't just bad, it was horrible. So I took the full color RAW file, applied some de-noise adjustment from Aperture, then into Silver Efex to get the final look I wanted. In all I'm quite happy with this.
