Some scenes scream to be converted to b&w. This old abandoned farm house was one. Converted with Nik Silver Efex Pro. The benefit of the Nik tool, is its ability to add control points which helped me to lighten and darken specific areas of the image. In addition Silver Efex has a plethora of sliders to help you feather the look even more.
