Default Crystal Cove in B&W

Following yet another rainstorm I visited nearby Crystal Cove State Beach and took some HDR shots and converted them to B&W. C&C welcome.

#2 This is a rocky beach, unsuited for surfing unlike our beach about 10 miles north of Crystal Cove

#5 If you're planning to visit So. Calif. this is one of the more scenic beaches, if you're up to the climb.

Wow ! Esp. #1 #2 #4 & #6 - heck all of them. The whole set looks like a scene from the future / past. I'm really getting fed up with all your amazing shots

Seriously this is an interesting technique I'd never considered before - I don't think I've any HDR shots that would meet the criteria but it's a great option when other factors are against you.

All fantastic, Walter, 5 is my fave. I love the way it curves round and out on the left of the frame and the people there is just great.

Lots of interesting lines to look at here. The b/w treatment does well with the hdr pp.

Fantastic shots! Do the rocks get covered up when the tide is in? The processing really brings out the texture but doesn't scream "HDR".
