    I needed 2 more pictures for the craft show that I just did and I wanted one to be b&w, and this scene seemed interesting. So I played with it and came up with the first picture. Then Thursday night *after the first day of the craft show* the teacher told us about lab color space, and the ability to adjust the brightness with out unwanted color shift, so I was playing around with it and I came up with a picture like the 2nd one. I thought I moved the picture I was playing with to my jumpdrive but I didnt, so I started from scratch today and got the 2nd picture here.

    What do you all think of these 2 pictures?

    I prefer the original I think. The second one seems edited 'just because you can' rather than actually helping the photo.

    Also if these are for the the exhibit, I think most people would prefer more natural looking photos than ones that look edited.

    The craft show is over, and I did use the first one. I was just having fun iwth the 2nd one. :0) Im going to look for a filter or action that will convert it to little dots like the way newspaper images are printed. :0)
