Old General Store in Black & White
Posted By: wa5am, 12-01-2008, 06:57 PM

Hope my conversion to B&W looks pleasing. I also warmed it up with a little sepia toning. Taken with a K20D and Sigma 17-70mm.

(another image, different angle and conversion added below in a reply by me)

Nice shot, if a little too tightly cropped if I may say so... (each to their own ;-) )

I don't mind the crop, and I love the conversion, the only niggle from my pont of view is the barrel distortion, that's quite visible at the bottom of the shot (mind: if it's just old building falling in through itsef therefore looking distorted the way it does, I do APOLOGIZE).
All in all, very good shot IMHO

I agree, however it is situated where the scenes to the left and right of it are not too fitting. Junk and some old portable building on the right and more of the same to the left. So the crop as it is. Thanks for the comments!

The building is distorted in shape, especially along the old porch. I actually had trouble getting a good level on it with the camera since there is really nothing level about it

Thanks Pete!

I like the crop as well - nice shot - I can see where it would difficult to get any kind of leveling with that building. Nice shot and nice pp

good shot, but why not to try wideangle . something like 16mm or even less.

Thanks for the comments...

Here is another angle and different B&W conversion. I used channel mixers to produce a near orthocrhomatic effect on the grayscale. I did let some red channel pass to keep some detail in the shadows, but the side effect of very little red was a real bright sky, so I cropped the top until I got a good balance in tonality.
