Landscape Photograph Edits using sepia, black and white, etc.

Landscape pictures can look like a completely different picture once edited. Any picture can for that matter but I just wanted to share a few of my landscape photo edits I have done. Just changing a picture to black and white or sepia makes a world of differance. But adding back in the original color makes it stand out a bit more.

Changed picture to Sepia and added the original color on the lake.

Black and white with small fade % with original color on the lake and waterfalls.  Added a soften effect and a vignet on the outer edge.

Adding Black and White to a picture or Sepia to a picture makes parts of a picture stick out that you normally wouldn't notice. I didn't pay any attention to the clouds in the last picture until I changed it to Sepia and noticed how much they pop out. The only edit that picture has is the Sepia effect. I did a challange once where I could only take pictures in black and white for a whole 30 days. It really does make a differance in every picture. Hope you enjoyed my photo edits.

I like the effects you created. I need to learn how to achieve this type of thing and more when it comes to editing photos.

SidKemp - I'm so glad it helps you :) I've noticed that adding pictures to your hubs really does get a lot more attention then the ones that don't have pics. Thanks for the votes :)
