And here is the B&W version. The only way I know how to do it is to desaturate it and then adjust the levels a bit....

Ah! A familiar site. I recognize that dock and the buildings on it. A number of years ago my wife and I boarded the Norwegian Sky at that dock for an Alaskan cruise. We returned to the same spot. Was this shot taken from a boat or ship?

Your BW conversion is good but could probably be made better with some of the other techniques that have been discussed here. I am thinking channel mixer or split RGB. Take a look at the links in the challenge description. There you will find descriptions of many techniques. I am assuming you have PS, PSE, or PSP. If you don't have one of those, look for similar tools in your software.

Thanks for participating and helping ME to learn!:lol::lol:
