I like the mood - but the dull blown out parts of the lights spoil it for me. Better to have them the same tone as the rest of the image?

By the way, I like the picture, Psych. (Sorry, that's the closest I can get from what you posted in your summary.)

Much more effective in b&w, imo.

I agree. Although somehow it looks less foggy, the mood is enhanced.

I think you can have it either way, Chris and end up with a good result. Depends on how much fog you want to leave in the picture. I made my conversion as high structure, harsh. To me the fog wasn't as important as the wetness of the street. If you cut down the structure you end up with more fog, and that makes sense if the you see the fog as the central fact.

It's very nice in b&w.
I also tried to take out of the bright light a little bit, but still keep the colors..

It's a fine photograph. The b&w conversions have, thus far, done some seriously nasty things with whatever the stuff is upper-right. Leaves?

I like it in color, for that reason, but also because I like the warm tones, for some reason. I don't know why, since the scene looks cold, to me.
