I LOVE the colors of the original and so I couldn't imagine liking a mono conversion.
Boy, was I wrong. This is a fantastically dramatic B&W. Moira was right to suggest it and you did a great job of processing.

I like mono even better!

This b/w version give the shadows and hamburger signage more prominence. Puts a completely different emphasis on the image. However, I must say that I prefer the colour version, though this verssion definitely merits a click.

I like it and it is a fine conversion but it does not have the impact of the original colour version.

Yay! (As our daughter would say... ) This is precisely what I had in mind. Suddenly that tree shadow gets really predatory. We are definitely not coming in peace...
I had the colour version shortlisted, I love it, but this is where my heart lies.

This is a very fine mono, but the color version is more in keeping with the place.

A super quality mono, Anne, but looking back at the colour version (which I nearly missed!) do think I prefer it in colour Wink

Yes, this really brings out the textures Anne, but with a comp' like that, how could it ever look bad?

It does work in BW but I definitely prefer the colour version. The colours are just too beautiful to lose Smile

I thought I'd do a Mod here - a lighter version.

I do enjoy viewing mono work when it's been superbly done - and very much so in this case. Here the author has used the mono zone system to good use - starting with lovely rich blacks and ending in crisp whites. Together with the excellent lighting and subject matter works a real treat for me.

Smashing.

Thanks all and thanks for the mods, which convince me more than ever that Nik Silver Efex Pro is a fantastic piece of software for mono conversions. Please note that in my version, the area of "Ed's Place" is lighter in tonal value than that of the bricks, all enabled by the ability to selectively used colour filter sliders.

I was hoping someone would take this to an even darker and moodier place than I did Wink
