Bayonne Bridge

All the posts showing off B&W shots has inspired me. Yesterday, a very cold, finger throbbing, day I drove to Bayonne, New Jersey to do a little shooting. The weather was bleak and I shot using film simulation bracketing with Dig Neg Standard and B&W. This scene didn't lend itself to punchy colors. Although the Dig Neg Standard profile was the best for the colored profiles I found that it did lend itself better to a B&W conversion than playing with the original jpeg B&W.

Below are a few shot converted to B&W using Topaz B&W Effects using varied settings. All shot with the 18-55 zoom and XE1. Originals look much better than compressed.

Can you believe they get $13 in tolls to cross this bridge?
