D2x | 70-200 VR | 200mm, f/8, 1/180s, ISO 100.

While picking up prints from my lab, I wanted to show my new D2x to the lab owner and so I picked these folks outside to test the camera with Shot through the lab's front window. Originally a color picture, the b&w just works so much better imo :|

Man.....what a shot!! It's hillarious! Oh the captions I can come up for this one! Great job and it speaks so much louder in black and white. It wouldn't have nearly as much character in colour. More please!

Thanks Rose, this isn't really the kind of photography I do, but it worked out pretty good In the original color image, the lady in the middle is wearing a bright red jacket which really pulled your eyes towards her. Converting to b&w made the jacket dark and closely matches the gentlemen's jacket on the left. In b&w, the gentleman on the right gets your attention and hence the caption works. I guess that all goes without saying
