    Great portrait! If you used tri-tone, it is VERY subtle. The real test of black and white is on a portrait of some kind. As always, you have it very sharp.

  • Yeah this one is pretty subtle but if you saw the pure Black and white image you might not think so. I’ll put it up now and take it down after you see it. That isn’t bad form is it??? I did this for the “No More Color” musicians around the world challenge, don’t think they were looking for a band member but never know.

    I can see the difference. The tri-tone is warmer and seems to have more depth.

  • I agree and I don’t know what it is about the depth but I have noticed that too. Not sure what or why that is. Tony
