    Would you mind posting the original? I am curious as to what the photo looked like out of camera. Very nice photo btw.

    Here's what the original looks like, monochrome in the middle, and the final output last. This is actually a 9-frame HDR but I had to tweak it further to get the details out more on the buildings. It was pretty blown out when it was tonemapped.

    Let me know what you guys think. I still love the B&W version and like I said, when I get it printed out, it'll be the B&W version.

    500ml,

    Did you do a B&W of the final color version as well? I am asking as it looks like there is a loss of detail in the bridge support in the B&W compared to the final color version.

    D700 + nikkor 85mm f1.4g @ f2, almost 100% crop! The image was only resized down from 1600-and-a-few pixels down to 1000 pixels (width). The 85 is a performer.

    Personally I prefer the bronze-toned retouched version. Straight B/W monochrome looks too cold for my taste.

    Photowerkz,

    Great shot! I have the 85mm 1.4 on the short list. After seeing it in action just makes me want it sooner. I think the wife may have a fit if I buy anything else right now though. Going to need to find a way to sneak this one in.

    I'm digging the fully retouched version. The B&W is nice, but I don't really care for the "glow" look in monochrome. In the final one it looks outstanding, though!
