what do you guys think, trees in the foreground a bit annoying?
Now that you're asking ... yes, they might be a tad distracting. But I feel I can say only little at 500x333px ... it is very SMALL. The clouds, however, look GOOD from what I can see now.
Better ... might be way large for some, but just fits my screen in one go.
Now I wonder: is this a black and white negative photo, or one taken in black and white mode but digitally, or is it a conversion? If it is the latter, how did you go about converting?
It seems a bit grey all in all, I feel that the subject as much might merit some stronger contrasts. Some real black and SOME real white, where it is to be had.
this is a conversion, i basically just grayscaled it, then added some contrast
thanks for your quick replies and advice.
Try to convert your colour photos via the Channel Mixer - it is more fun and the outcome can be so much more varied. Channel Mixer, tick to "Grayscale", and then shift the levers and look what you get.
this looks less gray to me, but maybe i need to re calibrate my monitor
