Here I've used nik Silver Efex Pro for black and white conversions. The background is a shot of "Dexter", our young neighborhood buck, who is resting in a nearby meadow. Young "Dexter" has two fine antler sprouts on the top of his head. They are nothing fine or fancy yet. The leaves in the foreground were out of focus. I had to bend down and look through some trees to capture the little fellow. This accounts for some of the variation in sharpness you see. The other elements added were extractions from the original image after I had done the conversion. The result is what you see here.
