    For this week’s challenge, let’s get our greyscale on. Choose to convert in camera or in post. Any subject except landscape/cityscape/architecture. As always new photos only please. Get out your gear and shoot!

    For those of us who are not experts at converting, here are some sites to check out.

    Finally can participate and I think I have the file size too large.

    Jefferson memorial shot through the MLK memorial:


    20190310140726_IMG_1142-01-1024x1433-800x1119.jpeg

    Used an ND filter and in camera multiple exposure to combine 9 six second exposures into a single image. It was an experiment in "erasing" tourists. Shot at the World War II memorial in Washington D.C.:

    20190310135307_IMG_1133-01-1024x730-800x570.jpeg

    This is a composite of more that two dozen images:

    WWI-A (2)-01-1024x409-800x319.jpeg

    Just another shot at the memorial:
