I don’t do B&W often but the color version of this kind of left me feeling flat. It is an image of down town St. Louis Missouri USA on Washington Ave. I like the contrasts of the B&W but am not sure. I removed the old white sky and replaced it with a bird filled cloudy sky. I then turned it to a B&W and adjusted the contrast. Your opinion would be appreciated.

    I love the perspective and the birds in the clouds above. You have the balance of the tonality perfect for interest. Well balanced too. :o)

    I cannot tell you technically much of anything, sadly. I only know it is an awesome image and has quite a dramatic effect! I do love the sky and the birds, and somehow, buildings and all it feels a bit eerie and ominous to me, which I must admit I love too!!!
    Great work!! xoxoxoxxoxoxoxoxo

    if I had to give my opinion, I’d say it’s a black and white picture of a building.
    But seriously, it looks great as you’ve presented it here.

  • Thank you seriously ☺
