You might not have guessed, but this was taken during a very colorful sunrise. I was mostly busy trying to capture the reflections, colors, and clouds Saturday morning and wasn't thinking B&W at first. But the contrasts of the pier against the morning light and stillness of the Chesapeake got me thinking. I overexposed this shot and then processed it as high-key in SilverEfex Pro. Funny that one of my favorite shots of the entire colorful morning has absolutely no color in it whatsoever.
