    Sony RX 100 V.2. Shot in black and white, and then processed in SFX1. The first photo was also processed through VSCO Scala profile. Digital black and white is way too smooth so I had to throw a bit of grain into the mix.

    Hope these work.

    Re: The Definitive Sony B&W Images Thread

    Mikal, I like the processing very much and think it works well for the second image. To me it's a bit unflattering for the subject of the first photo. Especially the way their skin is rendered. Of course, that's an entirely personal impression. I do think the grain looks very good.

    John, you're right about the first image and I am glad that you said something. I went back and forth between choosing a smoother image and one that was cooked a bit more. The baby looks better with more grain than does the woman (she is not the woman who placed the baby for adoption, but is a friend of hers) so I erred on the side of how the baby looked.

    Indeed a nice blast from the past Carlos, the days you always needed to have nickels, dimes and quarters with you to make a call.......

    And before they had numerical buttons you needed to turn a dial to make your call. I wonder how many kids would know how to operate one of these today.
    But that's where "dial a number" comes from.

    Apologies for repeating this image from another thread but I just felt it warranted to be shown in good old black and white where it has much more clout than the colour version IMHO.

    Old steam trains work quite well in B&W, here's two from the "Steam Locomotive Museum" in Jaworzyna Śląska (near Wroclaw, Poland).

    There was a lot of good stuff to be found in this shed, but it needs some attention to get back into working order

    The Zeiss 45mm Planar G and 90mm Sonnar G are both excellent monochrome lenses, FWIW. I'll post something when I get home.

    I recently got a 4k display. Looking at images on it is really great, but now I am noticing that images I upload to my website or to this site (and probably others) are getting trashed. I have the same downsampled jpg I uploaded sitting here on the desktop in Photoshop (at 200% no less) next to my browser window and it is quite different. Loss of micro contrast as well as lower frequency contrast. Bummer! How do I fix this?

    I recently got a 4k display. Looking at images on it is really great, but now I am noticing that images I upload to my website or to this site (and probably others) are getting trashed. I have the same downsampled jpg I uploaded sitting here on the desktop in Photoshop (at 200% no less) next to my browser window and it is quite different. Loss of micro contrast as well as lower frequency contrast. Bummer! How do I fix this?
    Are you converting to sRGB before uploading? Leaving in Profoto or Adobe or any other larger color space will desaturate colors (and blacks) as they render online due to gamma.

    I grabbed your image, loaded it into CS, assigned Adobe (my assumption), then added a simple curve to get blacks to black and whites to white and pinned mid-tone to mid, then converted to sRGB and repost it below -- does it look more like your original now?
