    Fantastic, and it does work better in mono then in colour anyway!

    Good Stuff

    I’m not always a fan of some HDR which borders on “hyper” reality. This shot shows the best use of an extended dynamic range… bringing out the details in the shadows without blowing the highlights

    I’m with Adrian – some HDR is a little over the top for me, but this is perfect. Great shot

    This has worked so well. Reduced much of that yellowness I got in mine. The B&W has brought out so much detail.
