I was asked by Mr. Cliff if I could repost my "PP-tutorial/technique" post from "Photo of the Day !!", so I will.

This is the original image:

It was a late afternoon with nice light and unfortunately I haven't brought my tripod. Therefore I tried to hold my camera as steady as possible. Some shot's with great success and some with less. This image was one with less success :wink: .

And on to the PP

1. Opened the image in Nik Silver Efex Pro 2 and converted it to B&W. (I LOVE this program for B&W conversions!!!)
Applied contrast and softening.
Adjustet highlights, midtones and shadows.

2. Opened the image in Adobe Photoshop CS6
Cleaning up and removing bubbles, seaweed and other stuff...

3. Final touch-up's in Lightroom 4
Local sharpening of the sand and adjusting color temp. (yes it does have an effect on B&W).

The final result:
