Made For Walking?

By chase
Taken at the Ruddington Village Museum a week ago during an excursion with Wooly & AlleyCatz.
Part of the cobbler's workshop display.
I liked all the tones in this image but thought I might have a go at a conversion to B&W.
Lighting was pretty poor...from overhead lamps...& the surroundings were rather orange looking wooden floors as the display is in an old Church in the middle of the village.
I used 7 bracketed exposures here,starting at 1/20th sec for the metered image then one stop apart under & over exposed.
Combined & tonemapped in Photomatix,converted to B&W using the Channel mixer & curves layers in CS3

Probably the last one from my HDR learning curve for a while...gotta find some new places to go Wink... & possibly the steepest of the lot as I included a conversion.

F11 manual mode
7 bracketed images
ISO 200
Tripod mounted
F/L 40mm
Pattern metering

Thankyou for taking the time out to look/comments.
Constructive critisism more than welcome Smile
