Here's a simple and, I think, interesting techinque that I *discovered* while trying to blend some daylight + incandesent mixed lighting to produce an acceptible image.

First, the original image. Taken with a Nikon D70, color balance preset using a white card. Time of day: early evening.

Next, using "Nikon Capture Editor," I changed the white balance from "As Recorded" to "Incandescent" which produced this lovely blue image...

Finally, I opened the image in PS7 and removed all the blue and cyan using Hue/Saturation by setting the blue and cyan values to "0" - The result...

Pretty simple and very easy if you shoot in RAW format. I realize that many photographers DO NOT like the splash of color inside a B&W image, but I thought I'd share this technique with those who like to experiment.

Happy New Year to all.

That is a very handy tip!

That's also an interesting fountain.. where does the 'fog' effect come from?
