Default Tonal Range

The first image is a difficult conversion from color to B&W because most of the image is highlights.

The second and third shots show good tonal range which brings out the texture in the image.

Nice work.

After downloading all these images, I had to administer a multi-vitamin to my 56K modem.

Now that's interesting. I totally disagree with Rod. The first converted image not only looks like it has the highest contrast (meets the challenge), but I prefer it over the others because it has "pop."

Though he didn't say it outright, Rod indicated a preference for the second and third conversions.

Glad you asked about gamma. I've been using curves all along but didn't know gamma was what it was about. Come to think of, I still don't know what gamma is referring to. Quantity of light and dark? I always associated the word with specific wave lengths.

i thought of gamma as dangerous electromagnetic radiation....but not in PS! lol
i actually thought it had to do with the way the image showed up on screen....(which i guess it does)

Please save your pics as .JPG or .PNG - Downloading multiple 1.4mb Uncompressed BMPs is no fun for people on Dial-up.
