BLACK AND WHITE CHANGE OF PACE


John of My Viewfinder suggested I post the fire escape in black and white. I also added film grain to the shot. I like the gritty effect.
Don't forget to enlarge the picture for the detail.

How interesting...the black and white with the gritty effect does give it a little vintage feel.... very nice shot

I think it's much better for this particular image. Great job for conversion and film grain is very nice touch.
I like this one better, Sue.

A graphic image. The B&W gives it an old mood!

Thanks for visiting.

I like it! Looks good.

I think black and white is the perfect choice for this.

I like this one a LOT!

Well done! I think this photo is much stronger in B&W. Too many people are afraid of grain. Sometimes it's plus, not a negative.

Nice shot. Makes me think of that book, "A Tree Grows in Brooklyn."

CG said...

Looks even better!

Love the photo! And what you've done with it! Makes me want to go rent "Rear Window"!

JAM said...

Good job, and with the window air conditioners, it does have the feel of an old photograph.
