One Simple Adjustment

Amazing what one simple adjustment makes. The only thing I did to this image from the previous post was to do a simple conversion to black and white with Nik Silver Efex. No other things were changed or removed in the background. No more purple and gold, people become more abstract shapes, and the viewer's eye, I think, is focused more on the players.


  1. I think they both work, since you still controlled the DOF pretty well in the original. The B&W certainly simplifies the image, narrowing where your eyes should focus.

  2. I agree with Doug. I have more focus on the players and didn't even try to look at the background.
