G'day all,

took this shot today along with a heap of others. But just wanted to get your views on both colour and B&W versions of the shot. Haven't cropped it or anything. So pretty much as is.

Ollie

Love the B&W version! I was bored so I took the truck out of it (hope you don't mind).

G'day,

actually thats awsome. I was going to try and get my girlfriend to take it out for me. Saved her the job. Noticed also you made it a tad brighter. I was actually thinking after I posted it that it was tad too dark. So thanks again.

I might post another one up of her son that came out nice. After I get some sleep.

To my eye, the B&W looks like it's been oversharpened. I can see that it has the same crispness as the color, but it looks oversharpened when turned into B&W -- the woman looks like a cardboard cut-out placed in front of a real backdrop. I don't get that sensation from the color image, so I much prefer the color shot.

G'day,

you know it took me a few looks to get what you were saying, but yes she does look a bit like she was placed there. I say for sure she wasn't as I have other shots. However I did change the levels of the B&W when I converted it over. But they were hardly touched at all. The main thing was that the levels made the pic a bit too dark.

Here is another shot of her to compare with.

Looking at an image (processed on a CRT monitor) on an LCD monitor will make them look oversharpened big time. Processing an image on and LCD and getting it to print out correctly is something most people have the hardest time dealing with after buying a new computer. I never use my laptop for processing images (& with the scarcity of CRT's around, I might just buy an extra 20" & put it in storage).
