Which version?
« on: April 25, 2018, 12:56:51 am »

They are both basically monotone but I can not decide.

The colour - it has more depth.  In this case, the mono treatment has flattened the image.

I agree, as the images are posted, but I suspect a better, more contrasty monochrome conversion would be possible and, perhaps, preferable to the colour.

As they are now, the color version is better but the B&W version could certainly be improved.

The color version has the element of the green exterior coming through an "essentially" monochromatic space...that could be accentuated somewhat...seems there is a little greenish light in upper window jamb as well. This is a  nice counterpoint protentially. That said B/W version cropped slightly on right and top makes for a powerful image...will pm a example. The B/W has quite a magenta/red cast at least on my tablet...not so sure about that

Thanks! I think everyone agrees the black and white version has potential, I think my new Dell monitor needs to be calibrated better. It has a slight color since it suppose to be a quadtone :) Anyway I would love to see the color and B/W versions you guys could provide. I kind of like the open shadows look of the B/W but it is coming across as flat.

Thanks!

If you're serious, Andres, make a high-resolution copy available for download and I for one would be happy to have a play with it.

I tend to use Dropbox for transferring large files (and for lots of other things too). I'd not heard of Hightail before, but at a quick glance it looks as if it would work: I assume your file is less than 100MB!

I can speak only for a Mac, but it's probably similar on Windows. Right-click on the file in your Dropbox folder and choose "copy dropbox link" from the popup menu. Then paste the link into a message here.

I prefer the colour version too, but the window in the middle with the green foliage and orange bars does jar slightly.  Maybe do a localised edit in Lightroom with a brush and desaturate the area.

I don't think it worked, let try https://www.dropbox.com/s/kxos1yc2435st47/SPIRAL.tif?dl=0

This second one works, but the image you've linked to is a fairly small TIFF. Would you be prepared to release the raw, or a full-size TIFF?

Dang! I get all this crazy symbols, I could open it with Google docs but I don't know if it works for everybody else.

Ah - probably my mistake. I have the full version now: I changed ?dl=0 to ?dl=1 at the end of the URL and it worked fine.

I'll have a play!

Great!! Perhaps more photographers could give it a try.

OK then - here's my bash at it. I tend to like quite high contrast, which might not be to everyone's taste. I used SFX Pro for the B&W conversion and I've used a little obfuscation and applied some warmth to the shadows using split tone in LR.

This is a pretty quick attempt. I like the image and think it could benefit from some more love.
