This was a new editing experience for me. Shot was processed in NIK Silver Efex twice. One layer with a strong blue filter and another with a strong green filter. Then merging the two layers in darken mode. That's why both the grass and the sky are dark.

Thanks on the editing comments! I realized last night that I really don't know how filters affect b&w. This gives me an excuse to go play and see what I'm missing. :)

Lovely shot! Congrats on the blue!

Great point of view, very well composed with excellent focus and I really like the post-processing. I think this will do very well or at least it should in my opinion.
