    A nice conversion. I would suggest that it's slightly over-exposed, and a little rich in mid-tones (grey). Try dropping the brightness down a little, and play around with levels and curves to see if you can get a more full dynamic range.

    I agree with tirediron.

    It's a nice shot, but try to make that barrow pop a little out of its surroundings. As it stands, the handles get a bit lost in the background.

    Looks good though. Keep it up :)

    I respectfully disagree. As an old BW shooter, the mid tones were what we shot for. In film we would maybe burn in an area to make it POP but here I think the overall tonal range is perfect and the composition is good. I would not change a thing and I think it is a wall hanger. Judt my humble opinion of course- but I think it is a classic.
