A black and white version of Zion National Park’s Court of the Patriarchs by the Virgin River

I posted a similar color version and a vertical composition of the same scene last year. As with the other two images, I stacked two hard-edge graduated neutral density filters (0.9 + 0.6) to get the desirable exposure. During post processing, after black and white conversion, slight dodge and burn were needed to darken the middle ground shadows and to lighten up the foreground water cascade.
