Judith suggested Rainy street could be in B&W. She has great B&W work and has been an inspiration to me. So I tried with PS to convert the photo into B&W. But I’m new to PS and don’t know if I did it right. Please let me know what you think about the tones, contrast, textures… will a more grainy feel help? Thank you.

    this is perfect; there is a hardness from detail that make the contrast and reflections real and give a ‘feeling’ of wetness on something hard, concrete.

  • Thank you very much, Arnold, for your beautiful and inspiring comment.

    Looks good Zhao.

    I would have liked to see it as a SC, with just the colour of the red light reflection.

  • I know what you mean, Richard. Red among gray tones would be stunning. I’ll learn how to select colours. Thank you!
