    Well, what can I say I came back for more torture today ;) Wouldn't know what to do without my daily torture on here:badangel:. Can someone explain to me what "M" button means on the dial on my camera? And what is Aperture? :lol: I wasn't able to view the inside of this historic "Little house on the prairie school," due to appointments only, however I have an appointment Wednesday to go inside.

    Are you asking us for C&C on these images ... since you posted in the Beginners Forum ?

    How did you convert to B&W ?

    The images appear dull ... flat. The highlights are not there (there should be as you are shooting in with sunlight) and the midrange seems to be stretched.

    I desaturated it in PS, then used curves to make it look old. I was trying to get it to look dull like an old photo.

    Hmm, trying to reproduce an old faded B&W print requires more adjustments.
    There is film grain, color sensitivity of the older films, and in some cases the aberrations of old lenses.

    You should have made a mention that this is what you were trying to achieve ... I thought you were just posting a simple B&W version of the colour image.

    ... there appears to be some odd artifacts in the second shot ...
