    Nice work Lenny! I am sure in a shot like this there was some nice color, so I know it's hard sometimes to make that B&W choice when the color feels so nice too. But I am glad you chose this one. In B&W it's all about the tones and how the colors translate then to B&W. I am not sure how you converted this, but one thing I like about the B&W converter in Photoshop is that you can control the tones of each color separately as it's being converted. There is a lot of power in that.

    I like the composition and your conversion. Venice has nice colors, but it's also a good subject for B&W.

    The perfect choice for this scene. The detail & depth almost gives it a 3D feel. Nicely done.

    Thank you Jim. I still need more practice in processing black & white.

    Thank you. Maybe I should post the color one as well. What do you think?
