Tried a B & W conversion to this shot. Not sure whether it works. Haven't really done much with regards to monochrome in the past. Comments always appreciated.

Nice shot. The B&W simplifies the scene, while the lines of the bridge draw you in.

Looks Good Syd, as stated already by kefln above. Is that an Antenna at the bottom left of the picture? Just curious, may want to clone that out, just a thought.

Thanks dudes. Not an antenna, it is just the road markings.

Here's the colour version for comparison . . .

Definitely prefer the black & white version Syd since it has more of a mood to it - nice converging lines. Will you be selling prints of this? :G

The lead in lines and contrast between the metallic reflection and the bridge are very effective in the B&W. That one gets my vote. The person and the car also add to it (I like the movement of the car).

B&W is the winner. Nice conversion.

Not a bad shot Syd. It has to be the black and white. I'm not sure if the car is helping or not. Might be good also edited out if possible.

nice one
