Today I would like to share black & white HDR photo I took in Dolina Koscieliska (Koscieliska Valley) in Polish Tatra Mountains. Conversion to black & white in case of this photo was pretty natural choice as the original image was close to monochrome as well - there was a lot of whites (snow, clouds) and tones close to black (stream, rocks, trees trunks).
