Default B&W Reject

Thought this one had a chance. Alas, no.

Oh well. Maybe my enjoyment of B&W photos makes me a luddite.

I like it, lots to look at. If you want to keep it as a B/W, I would suggest bumping the contrast a bit more. Looks more grey than B/W to me. You may have to bring the exposure down a little after that to bring the whites back down from being blown.

This is one of those rare shots where I have the raw file, histogram is just right, and very little cropping was necessary (just to level). Wish I had a wider angle lens though.

If that's the case, we should never ever ever see another B/W widecab added to the DB.

I need to recheck the leveling on that one too. Looks like Trump Tower may actually be leaning.
