    to dark/grey. I do see some shadow detail on the right that might come out nice in print, but it still looks a little muddy.

    yea i as in a canyon so it was tricky to maintain shadow detail without blowing out the clouds.

    original?

    Your b&w conversion doesn't look as good as it could be, but I like the shot.

    well i dont like the composition on this one as well, but i think it might be the kepper of the group. (these are just quick web edits from the raws, not the actual edit that will make it to print.

    I like the comp. much better in the first.

    If you post process the first one correctly it could be really nice.

    what method are you using for BW conversion because those look pretty craptastic.

    oh. I guess they are just underexposed then. Both shots look really muddy and flat.

    ok have fun. like i said i didnt do the best converstion possible cause i was more interested in composition at the time.

    i might work on these later tonight and do some real editing to them. here we are from RAW. (kinda big file).

    btw this was handheld, so its not the most tack sharp image in the world, but its close enough.

    edit : is there anything wrong with my camera? i swear this was 200 iso

    Either:
    1) You've already did some editing and lost what little information was there

    2) it wasn't ISO 200

    3) Your camera is busted

    I'd go back and re-shoot it with a tripod and at a different time of day.

    you severly underexposed that shot, then brought it up in RAW.

    The noise is only in the shadows, and gets worse as the shadow detail deepens.

    Your camera is fine.

    If you disagree, link the CR2 file AND post exif.

    What lens? Some lenses start to break up after ~f16. That could have been it too.

    Did you shoot this raw or jpeg?

    I would not be quick to blame the camera or the lens, just go back(if you really want that image) and re-shoot.
