Abstractification through B&W Conversion (2)

The following image is a prime example of how b&w conversion emphasizes the nature of light in an image. This on is called
Morning Light:
Morning Light 19498

There is also some contrast-tweaking with curves because the gradient in the contra-light is very subtle.
Taking this image in you may find it pretty realistic looking, although all colors are missing. Seems to relate quite well to the impression I had when standing there: in the strong contra-light and the slight mist colors really looked very subdued to the eye. The only exception being the green of the undergrowth.
