Plunging into Black and White

For a personal project this winter for the local camera club I decided I would explore black and white.  I added Nik software to my Lightroom and Photoshop.  I love the presets the software provides.  All of the following images were processed in Nik using a preset and then adding a few little tweaks, such as a yellow filter to darken the blue skies and lighten the grain crops.  I am thrilled with the results so far -so expect to see a lot more black and white this winter.  I hate to say it but I am looking forward to those awesome contrasty days with white snow and blue sky.
