Ok, I know you’ve been seeing a lot of B&W conversions of late, here on 2 Guys Photo, but I wanted to show you one more feature of Topaz B&W Effects.
Using brushes, as opposed to layer masks, one can easily apply coloring selectively to a black and white converted scene. This was taken from the lobby of The View Hotel, which is located right in Monument Valley (the only hotel in the valley) and is owned and operated by the Navajo Nation. For more on our experience there, please read this post.
As breath-taking as it was to look through these windows and see the iconic buttes of the valley, I find this treatment attractive too, as it almost gives it the look of a painting on a wall. Art imitating life.
