    Christmas in Tokyo

    One of the apartment buildings under construction near my office put up some lights. I had trouble getting it to work in color so I tried B&W and I was surprised how different they ended up being. I think I like the Aperture one a bit more. It's almost 1am, so too late for me to mess around with them anymore tonight.

    Aperture:

    Cool shot. Since you supplied the RAW, I played around with a few things. This is Raw Developer to PS4. I might have gone a bit heavy on the noise suppression. Amazing how many different outcomes are possible from one RAW file.

    I think I'm having too much fun fiddling with all the levers and dials right now. I like your interpretation. You pulled out the details in the sky better then I did. I was trying to pull out more of the Christmas lights so I was messing with the B&W conversion options which is why I ended up the weird taxi colors sometime.

    I need to do some reading on B&W photography.

    I'm hit and miss with B&W. I applied some Nik filters for Capture NX2 here:

    I like that! I think I'm going to have to pick up the complete pack for Aperture sometime. I need to figure out a good way to get rid of the lens flare too.
