I took a number of photos of hood ornaments on this day. Most were shot with a horizontal orientation, but I shot this one vertically because I wanted to capture the hood ornament and the grill badge, while minimizing any distracting elements (the rest of the car).

Nicely done. Did you shoot this in BW or convert it afterward? Either way, it turned out great.

I am thinking of doing a monochrome challenge. Shooting BW can be a challenge if one has not done much of it.

Thanks for the comments. I shot the photo as a colour JPEG, and converted it to monochrome, and toned it slightly in Photoshop. This is one of my first attempts at toning, and the difference, while subtle, is effective. The reflections in the chrome lokkedquite flat in the original B&W attempt. The hardest part is knowing when to stop, so I'm keepingmy toning efforts pretty subtle until I am more comfortable with it.

Looking at it now, it could use some sharpening. Still, I like it.
