Money Talks

Here is another one from the archive. Doing a bit of closet cleaning :) 

 

Sometimes I think it is difficult to get the tones right when you're converting night time shots into monochrome. What do you think? Are my blacks black enough :) ? 

 

South Street Seaport Manhattan is adjacent to the Financial District in Newyork and features some of the oldest architecture in downtown Manhattan. It includes the largest concentration of restored early 19th-century commercial buildings in the city. This includes renovated original mercantile buildings, renovated sailing ships, the former Fulton Fish Market, and modern tourist malls featuring food, shopping and nightlife, with a view of the Brooklyn Bridge.

Technically it is difficult SAVO but I think you have pulled this off admirably
SAVO: Lol. The most technical bit of this was actually my position wink
I think it works very finely. I know these streets very well and the light is very difficult to control having such a wide number of reflection points to mingle with!
SAVO: Thanks a lot Juan!
Looks good to me SAVO. Nice solid blacks and a good range of tones
SAVO: Thank you Bill!
