The color version appears washed out, hiding detail, but the b&w version brings out all of the intricate shadows and detail beautifully. Excellent photo! LikeLike Reply Thank you so much. Maybe I did a poor job on the colour photography though, I could try and improve it quite easily. LikeLike Reply Well, I guess I should have also mentioned that I adore B&W photography, but I also know that some photos just aren’t strong enough to pull it off. Your photo is. It’s beautiful as B&W. LikeLike That is very very kind of you. Thank you. I am now following your blog too. Let’s keep in touch and thanks for your kind feedback LikeLike this is so beautiful! LikeLike Reply Thank you so much 🙂 This is indeed a heavenly part of town, a bit like the mews area around Craven Road in London if you see what I mean. LikeLike Reply In the color version the clouds jump out, while in the BW it’s the cobbles. Interesting! LikeLike Reply Thanks David. I will post two more today. LikeLike Reply I prefer the b&w version. But this may be an example where selective colorisation of the blue sky on an otherwise b&w image might work well. LikeLike Reply Thanks! would you do that with Photoshop? Would you require CS5+ or would a standard PSE do the job? LikeLike Reply I only have lightroom but it is a function inside the Nik Silver efex plugin. You should be able to do it in PSE. Just google selective colorisation PSE and you should find something helpful. LikeLike Excellent! I’m a lightroom fiend too. I’ll check the Silver efex plugin. Thanks for the tip. LikeLike OK, I just learned something about selective colorisation in LR. I hope this helps: LikeLike Wow, this is absolutely brilliant! I love Gavin Howie’s video training sessions, they are just great. Thanks a million for the tip. LikeLike It works beautifully. I will soon post a picture using this technique.
