Here's an image from late last year when I had a few days in northern New South Wales. Just trying a few ideas with toning of black and white images.....any opinions?
cheers Andrew

A very good image to work with, Andrew.
I'm not a big fan of toning towards blue. Just me.
I think using one of the warm grey duotone will work better.
Or go straight for black and white. I like to use a selective color mask as a starting point (after the conversion)
and playing around with the white, grey and black sliders.
Cheers Chris

A rugged coastline, the toning gives it that wild cold feel, I like it for this image.

Love that water rushing off the basalt columns. Fine image Andrew.

Thanks for the comments everyone, I appreciate the time you take to leave them.
I know I have a lot more images from this morning, so I'll have to have a closer look at the others!
cheers Andrew

Blue works for me. water is blue and it makes sense to try a blue duotone. I think the image would be even better without that distant sky and background.
