The Bridge

Waterfall B&W

This photo was originally in color and I couldn’t for the life of me get it to be interesting. I must have played with it in Photoshop for over an hour without much success. I decided to drop the beautiful green color in the plants and focus just on the shades. I used my favorite tools in Photoshop (dodge and burn) to bring out certain parts of the image. I’m just happy I found a way to make the image pop a little.



  1. Spectacular photo! Works perfectly in B&W. I have just begun to learn the dodge/burn tool. Slowly learning it’s capabilities.

  2. All that pretty green! Gone! Leave it to you to turn Maui into black and white. 🙂

  6. This photo is unbelievable. Beautiful! But for love of money you would not catch me on that bridge. No way … nope.

  7. I really like this in black and white. It makes it stand out from your typical Hawaii shots and emphasizes the different textures.
