Fisgard Light

Victoria, BC

This image was taken back in 2005, on a trip to Victoria, BC. I liked the color version, but really
liked how the conversion to B&W added a lot of drama to the sky. Slide was scanned and file
tweaked in PSCS2. (I worked on this a long time ago, but never successfully got rid of a color cast in
the shadow area. I came across the file again today and played around with it and got better results.)

Image was converted to B&W using Fred Miranda's B&W Workflow Pro plug-in. I then played around with
the middle slider in Levels to fine tune tones and add more drama to the sky.
