Urquhart Castle B&W conversion
Lens: DA 18-135 WR Camera: K-3 Photo Location: Urquhart Castle, Loch Ness, Scotland ISO: 200 Shutter Speed: 1/250s Aperture: F8 

It's not easy to get shots of tourist spots without the tourists, but I was pleased with this one. I thought it would look better as a B&W conversion, but I've not done much of this in the past. I tried to darken the greens and lighten the reds (the castle looks like red sandstone). What would you suggest to make this photo look its best?
