Dull, Dark and Damp

Daily Shoot - 2010/01/15: Converging lines direct the viewer's eye. Sometimes found in railroad tracks, highways, and buildings. Make your photo ( http://twitter.com/dailyshoot/statuses/7788191275 ) !
I wouldn't have walked along the boardwalk today, except that I needed to find some converging lines for the Daily Shoot challenge. Last week I needed my snowshoes to get here. Mild temperatures the past two days have really dropped the snowbanks. As you can tell by the tracks the boardwalk in Harbourview Park is now walkable.
The light today was very dull and flat so I tried another HDR photo, using the AEB setting on my camera to take 3 photos at different exposures -2/0/+2. I merged them in Photomatix Pro and was quite pleased with the result. I then converted the photo to black and white in Nik Silver Efex Pro so that the colour information didn't compete with the lines. Et voilà!
