    I took this at work today, and coverted it to B/W with GIMP and added a border. :hs:

    What does the DSLR crew think?

    to me they both look like they've been touched up way too much. sky for example on the second pic.

    The first picture was converted to black and white with Gimp, very little done to it. The second one was just sharpened a little, and that's it. I was shooting the second one at night, and had a long shutter speed to try to capture all the light I could...I didn't bring a tripod along with me. Plus-I was stopped from taking photos of the buildings for "security" reasons. :noes:
