Just Milling Around

The 19th century water-powered grist mill was a very important commercial part of the pioneer community. The ones that survived now serve as a fascinating glimpse into the industry and ingenuity of past generations.

They are also a common photographic subject. They have lots of character. Since they are next to bodies of water, there are clear lines of sight to the building and water makes for reflections. Black and white conversion done in LR2. My project idea for my Christmas vacation is to make a series of black and white prints. I intend to experiment with Nik Software's SilverFX Pro and see how much better a result it produces. I have heard many good things about it.
