Challenge #21 in the Eclectic series. Hosted by upuaut.
Challenge has finished
Submit an image that you took that disappointed you when you viewed it in color. But then you turned it into B/W and viola.. much better. Then you applied some B/W tweaks to give it more oomph. Your submission should contain both the original color, and B/W-transformed images split evenly either vertically (if original is horizontal) or horizontally (if original is vertical.) Refer to sample. Subject is open.

This was a 3 image stitch, they started out over 6000px wide so lost a lot of detail shrinking them down so much. Did not have my tripod with me so had to shoot at a high ISO.
