I posted a color version of this recently, and that got me to thinking about 'what-if.'
Wow, a powerful image. Great conversion technique
Looks pretty nice!
I think your what-if got you to a good place.
i love it
It's great. Where was this taken?
very nice ... very contrasty.
mad max is coming for you
I think perhaps this may be a side effect of your tone-mapping, but it just isn't sharp enough IMO. It looks almost like camera bump.
Also, it seems you've been attacked by the highlight gremlin. The range here is way too narrow. Check the histogram.
Max: My demons are many- gremlins a comfort.
Max, technically you might be right.
But I think the highlights and the narrow range contribute to the feeling generated by the image. it suits the mood.
The image you have in your head might be a different one, not better, not worse. but different.
