    Well Here they are in Black and White. Please let me know what you think.
    In July my future Brother-in-law and I went exploring at the Defunct Lincoln Park in No. Dartmouth, MA
    The Comet (Roller Coaster) is pretty much the only thing standing.
    Enjoy! And please post comments here!
    And OH for history on Lincoln Park go here.

    I like image number 4. With b&w photography you want to make sure you get a whole range of greys, from white to black. Picture 4 has a good range. The other pictures lack that range. For instance, photo #1 just looks like a blob of grey, there are no black or white parts in the image.
    I'm not too familair with digital editing, but perhaps try some filtering. I think Google's Picasa has a filter feater in it for b&w photos.

    To make b/w images, I've found this to work:

    New layer: Gradient Map
    Chose B/W
    Increase the Brightness/Contrast by 7 each

    Sometimes they need a little tweeking after that but it's a good base to work with.

    Bump up the contrast in photoshop, and they'll pop.

    they are trying to build some townhouses, but some historical group is trying to stop them, but it will be down soon. my friend is working with the land surveying firm doing the job.

    A little too dark. Should have adjusted the ISO to let more light in.
