Not what I expected at all. Personally I am not a fan of the sky in typical monochrome landscapes. I find it dark, no contrast, basically takes away from the overall photograph. Just my opinion.
I first started this because I was already working in DxO Silver Efex. Ultimately this came about. I liked it.
Sunset, and most landscapes still are best in color, but I should try monochromes more often.
