Brewhouse Lights
Lens: Sigma 17-70mm F2.8-4 Camera: K-50 Photo Location: Brewhouse Inn, Milwaulkee ISO: 800 Shutter Speed: 1/25s Aperture: F3.5 

I was on business trip up to Milwaukee recently and packed my old K50 just in case. The hotel ended up being a great place to get some fun images. The brewhouse inn is a conversion of the old Pabst brewery. I'm pretty happy with how the neon turned out on this one. Color or Black and white? Any improvements?

Hey there! Nice shot!

Bw look too plane for my taste, maybe working the shadows or adding some contrast it could be a bit more interesting.

Color looks better, the red is amazing, you could play with hue and saturation to find a desired effect; but the wall looks just amazing.

If you're going for b&w, try applying a colored filter before converting and see which one you like. I guess this one could benefit from a red filter. Experiment a bit and see what you like.
