    I've shown this to others, and opinion seems to be split. Some people think it's a good B/W conversion, others (who are generally the more experienced photographers) tend to think it's over processed.

    So, I thought I'd field it here and see what you guys think.

    Yeah, I think it's a little too... something. Over-pp and maybe a bit dark, though I'd be concerned about brightening it and losing the sky. Might do a selective brightening without the sky.

    Just my opinion, though... if lots of people like it slap a price tag on it and sell some prints. :lol:

    Excellent composition.

    Yes, there's some loss of shadow detail, but not huge splotches of the image.

    All in all, well done with some tough lighting.

    I love the composition.

    The shadows on/just under the roofs are a bit dark though.

    i have revisited this post because, one, it remembered all this time, and two, I believe it would be excellent as a Digital Cyanotype. You should definitely try it!

    Personally I think it lacks in contrast a little bit. I would come alive more but you probably will also have to do some dodging and burning.
