Trying to learn BW  I thought this might make a good conversion from color. I believe this is in Cade's Cove. if there are any suggestions, please feel free,,,,

Very nice.

It looks good as is, I don’t know if I would lighten it a touch, but I am not sure. Might try it only to bring out some more detail. Maybe, increase contrast a touch.

Thought about lightening it a bit, especially the cabin shadows. It seems that the whole dhot is a bit dark in this posting.

Try making just the green lighter.

Is this an improvement? I want to enter this into my club competition and want it to be right. Thanks for all of your comments.

I like it more. It’s dramatic ..... but ...

More chromatic aberration along the roof line. Slightly noticeable in the first image but very pronounced in the second.

Do you have NIK Silver FX?

I like the first better hands-down. Just the right mix. The shadows don't bother me at all. They lend drama.

==========================================================
Digital: D610 backed up by a D1x.  Quoted from an unknown source by a fellow planeteer, "Never get rid of a working D1x." I've got to agree.

Film: N90s, F3, F100, F4s, C330s. A few lenses.

Why film photography? I like shooting with the equipment. 6x6 Velvia slides from a C330 have an appeal all their own.

Why automated 35mm/Digital cameras? Event photography is about capturing moments. It often requires quick response. Well done automaton can be your friend or your enemy. It all depends on knowing what it can and can't do. "A man's got to know his (camera's) limitations." paraphrasing Dirty Harry...

I agree with Art. 

 

Also, Nik Silver FX is a top notch program.  :)

Oh,my, I did not notice that. I ran it through NIK Silver, but font really have a lot of experience with that. I will go back to the drawing board.
