Well.......you decide which is best of these 2 color pics.

(A) is the one you already saw.

(B) I pushed the contast to the max!!
I thought (A) looked kinda bland and washed out.
Thought it might look a lot better with some "DRAMA"?
Did I over do it or did it look fine the way it was? :confused:

I like the contrast boost, deffinetly gives it more drama.

Looks pretty good. Now I'd like to see the b&w version w/ the contrast boost. IMO, I think b&w would look more dramatic.

There are parts that are great with the over dramatization and others that could do without it. For instance, the grass looked better initially, IMO. However, I love the way the contrast punched up the rust on the can and weather marks on the fence.

I agree with Tommy that I'd like to see it applied to the B&W version as well.

Same exact parameters applied to B&W.
Looks a lil dark on my end?

It is a little dark, I agree, but I've got them side by side and I like it better than the original B&W. It's less... hazy and dreary. Not sure if those are the words I'm looking for exactly, but I just had a full lunch and a nap is foremost on my mind.

Ok here it is with +15 Brightness and +12 Contrast on top of what I previously did.

I think that's the one! Still sharp and dramatic but not as dark. I like it!
