    I have a couple questions about this photo to which I would love some C&C.
    Which BW conversion is better (more visually pleasing or technically correct)?
    Do you like this photo? (is it well composed and/or interesting)

    Also any tips what so ever on this type photo or BW conversion, are greatly appreciated.

    I dunno why but I like #2 much better. #2 says touch, can-do, and power-sports while #1 says "shouldn't this be in color?". Like I say, I have no idea why.

    On greyscale conversion in general I like this tool: B/WStyler. There's a demo to play with too. :D

    first one does it for me. too much dark areas in second one (went overboard with the contrast?).
    composition is nice as well, you made an interesting picture out of motorbike tires. i wonder what it would look like with the tree more to the left though

    Oh Alpha, I love your help because I know you know what you are talking about...I just wish I knew what you are talking about? Digital sky? The change from light to dark? I thought it was neat...part was from a polar filter, some was vignetting I did.

    Something about digital sensors tends to greatly darken skies. It's not necessarily a bad thing, just usually a dead giveaway that it's digital.
