    Hello,

    I see why you've done a mix of color and b&W but it's a bit weird...
    It's a difficult shot because the people are much lower than the memorial, so you did quite well actually.

    But I think the B&W conversion is quite poor. A lot of hightlight (look at this guy's Tee on the right, super duper flashy-white), and the B&W is quite grey. I don't know what the colour picture looks like, do you have the same hightlights? If not, maybe try to fix it,

    See ya!

    I also think it's a difficult shot and there's only so much you can do with it.

    Would it be terribly dishonest to move the tree thing down a tad so you could crop closer in to the people?

    Also, maybe post the original so we can see it on color? If you stick with the B&W, I'd tone down the color a little of the colored part. And I also see blue on the one guy also.

    Here - I didn't bother to smooth it up, but to give you an idea:

    i also noticed the guys shirt having a smudge of blue in it after i had already posted.

    im not exactly photoshop savy, but i do see what you mean about moving the memorial down, exactly how did you do that?

    I just cut a chunk out of it, copied it and slid it down - the copy is over the original, so you can't see it - I had to move the sign and the round thing seperately - see the line between them? Then, you'd work a little on the tree leaves to get rid of the lines - you can still see them, as well, but I didn't really bother with that. If you look close or zoom in, you'll see them easily. I can fool with it later if you like and make it look much better, but I won't have time until later, if I have time to get back tonight.
