From this image I would never have guessed that B & W was outside your comfort zone.

Youve done very well with this, - not only the mono conversion, but the subject matter and composition.

I have some suggestions, - theres nothing too much wrong with this as is.

Crop space from the right to eliminate the corner; think about darkening the shot overall, and selectively restoring some lighter areas for a more dramatic look; add a little space at the bottom just to move the barrows away from the edge; try a duo toned version.


Ive loaded 2 mods to show what I mean.


Well done,



regards


Willie

thanks willie points taken and i like the mods, i did not convert this it was shot using mono it was very much straight out the camera with the exception of a little tweak in shadows and high lights.

Thats a good result from the camera. You can also try colour and convert, you will have more control over the result.

Hi Steve.

Like yourself, I had a dabble with B/W a while ago. I did as a means of getting back some inspiration and I found it both interesting and more than a little challenging.
As Wilie has said, this has turned out well, having been "converted" in camera.
You'll get much more satisfaction though if you use a colour image and convert it yourself.
I won't go on re. the various ways in which you can do it as I dare say that you already know them.
Suffice to say that my favoured method (and I tried quite a few) was to use Lightroom. There are tutorials around, a couple of which I followed with a fair degree of success

Good luck!

Bren..
