I know this is a mono site but I was wondering if I have a particular colour image that I am having issues converting to mono, can I post the colour here to let you wizards have a go?

Re: Posting colour


This is the image I am having issues with.
It was taken on a sunny day hence the haze in the background.
Firstly I would like to get more detail thru the haze if possible as the cliffs in the background do have "detail".
Second, I wish to retain the wet rocks & seaweed look and maybe draw it out a bit more but without overdoing it.
Thirdly, as you can see, the sky is all but dead, in need of more detail here but only enough to give detail without distracting the eye from the lower areas of the pic.
And lastly, when I have converted it to mono I keep loosing the details in the upper areas of the sea

I did all this in Adobe camera Raw, adjuted the colour in the Black and White Luminosity tab, (not much to do here) darkened the sky with the grad filter, add a little clarity to the far cliffs, didn't want to over do that as we would loose the feeling of depth, added clarity to the rocks, lowered the highlights on the rocks selectivity.

Thanks Martin, I have tried your method with some success, I also used DxO to see "through the haze" which helped bring out a tad more detail on the cliffs
