Lucky Strike
Posted By: AprilFool, 05-10-2008, 07:03 AM

I shot this with my Sigma 17-70mm @17mm and f2.8

The original photo - almost no PP.

And this is after PP.

I like the second one better, since B&W makes it look more like 3D. What do you think?

Sure, the B&W makes the 3-d pop more, but IMO the pic needs more shadows or contrasty areas to make the B&W appealing. You could try darkening the picture or add vignetting to enhance the B&W effect.

I'm a fan of the color photo -- lots of clean, "happy" colors with a white box in the middle
