    I’m always amazed at how well high ISO can look when converted to B&W. It almost looks filmish with the noise – OK so yes I know it’s not as good as film (some banding and transitions aren’t quite as nice they will say), but it’s ISO 25,600 for goodness sake!!

    In other words, it’s pretty amazing we have these abilities in our cameras to make lovely images like this one. If it’s good, it’s just good! Well done Mark!

      Thanks (heh…) very much Jordan!

      It is true…almost “the higher the better” for B&W conversions. This one was shot in-camera at 12,800 and pushed another stop in LR for an effective 25,600–It was exceedingly dim out, so I’m quite pleased with the result!

      All the best,
      Mark

    25,600…yeeks! Was is it near darkness? Looks like you had whatever on the front wide open.

    Mmmm….I’m not so sure it’s about colour or B&W or noise here……Elvis steals the show!

      Thanks Karim & Andy!

      It was indeed quite dark–toward the end of our “Trick-or-Treat” run. I believe this one was shot at f/1.8
