In an effort to study a genre of photography that baffles and perplexes me to no end, from time to time I try taking a "Street Photography" shot. I look at it in color, then in B&W, back and forth, back and forth and still I don't know if one or the other is better than the other or the one. Maybe neither, maybe both. I wonder how good "Street Photographers" know when they've taken a good shot?


You might want to try a different version of B&W, called Monochrome. Monochrome is where you manipulate the tones in the B&W image. Using color filters in post processing can manipulate the tones in the image:

Do you have both--the Nik package as well as PhotoShop? Have you used them both and consider the Nik package equal to, or better than, PhotoShop?


I use the Nik Photoshop plugins, they work together seamlessly.

You and Mr. Smith are making a good case for refining color conversion to Monochrome rather than B&W. You've shown an excellent example of how tones are manipulated. I'm liking this better and better the more I learn from you guys. Thanks so much for the information. I'd like to see a few more examples of color conversions to monochrome. This is a good study.
