Made this image after watching these webinars:

In addition to the two interviews, which are interesting, on the bottom of the page there are 4 webinars for B&W "printing". However, they spend most of their time on Nik's Silver eFex Pro conversions and Define!! I found them to be very interesting.

I don't have a Epson pro level printer and, in general, I don't really like the B&W images I get from my Epson 837 as they tend to have a bluish cast.

However, I tried processing an image as these guys demonstrate and had it printed 20x30 at Costco ($8.99!!) and the results are terrific!! Here's the image I printed …

(This is a Minuteman III ICBM missile silo somewhere in northern Colorado … not really an impressive image, but printed large it goes well in my office!!)

Cheers!!

An image really suited for b&w, Ken!
Almost an abstract composition in lines.

Thanks … the silos (and control centers) were built in the mid-60's and have not changed much since.
