Shot 13 of 31 in Black and White October

The talented (x1000000) Neil Kremer posted an image of this staircase a couple days back He was wondering....what the hell it was used for.. my best guess is this was for beach access. His awesome HDR got me excited to get up for sunrise and give a B&W a go this morning. With a bit of free time and a nice tutorial from a Nik Software rep at the California Photo Festival for Color Efex I processed this with a ton of contrast...and think I finally found out how the Midnight filter can be useful.

Another dark image in this series but I couldn't imagine a bright B&W for this grungy subject.

Thanks for looking...and for the inspiration to give this a try, Neil!
