Trying to capture the full power and grandeur of the wonderful mountains in Torres del Paine NP, Patagonia, Chile.  While I like the color version of this image I really like the B&W conversion.  Early AM - 5:30 - shot with the Sun just peaking through the clouds. Converted in NIK Silver Efx Pro and then tweaked a bit more in PS.

Please click on image to see details. Thanks for looking.

I still prefer the colour versions of this scene, Ed, not that this isn't well done - its just that the colour versions really sing IMO.

Thanks for the EP! While I do like the color version of this shot, the B&W, to me, shows a lot of mood and mystery the color image can't convey. Thanks again for recognizing this image.
