Hi, I posted a similar photo to this a long time ago when I was still working with film and I know I got a positive responce (http://www.ephotozine.com/u50011/gallery/485566). I look this last year on my digital camera and have been trying to work out what's wrong with it. I have recently cropped it and added some grain (which I think helps with B&W photos - they look so flat otherwise). I would be interested to know whether you think this works and whether you think it is better or worse than the original posted. Thanks for looking.

Hi Nick.
The Blacks in this image are not as black as the Blacks in your original - compare the Black of your border with the darkest tone in this image, they are grey.
The building with the curved roof is much brighter & more prominent than in the original ,breaking up the form of the bridge.
About to try digital B&W but I have been told that it is difficult to get that "film" look.
Regards ,
Geo.

Thanks for the comments - I must agree with you Geo, I think it would help if the blacks were darker. I think digital has a greater range of different shades compared to film, and digital it is great for portraying details, I am not sure that it gives the same impact and can look flat.

Very strong B&W. Lots to look at here and the contrast is good.
