Coffee Coloured Sunset

This is my final image from Rebecca Spit on Quadra Island, BC. Really. Well … for this year’s trip anyway.

This is a high dynamic range image made by combining 3 exposures in Photomatix. Then I brought the resulting HDR image into Nik Silver Efex Pro where I converted it to black and white and treated it with some coffee coloured toning. I really like the coffee shade – it is not quite as brown as sepia and just adds a little warmth to the grey tones.

Rebecca Spit has quickly become one of my favourite places to photograph so I’m sure I will visit again when I am back in BC next summer. It’s hard to believe I only have 7 weeks left in BC before heading back down south to enjoy a warm winter and do some more exploring in the desert.

    I love your coffee toning- you should make a Lightroom preset (assuming that it is what you used)… I wouldn’t mind downloading it :).
    I often find pure black and white conversions lacking something, depth maybe, and subtle coloring always fixes that.
