Carriages at Beamish Museum
One of my main aims in visiting Beamish this time was to produce a series of mono images and this shot of the carriages was no exception. However, I know members like comparisons so here is the colour version.

Aghhhhh just when I'm working on a panorama of the same shed
A cracking mono and no mistake and I have no hesitation on preferring this to the colour version (my pano will be in colour however )
Gorgeous tones, and detail captured in this fine line up of carriages and carts, excellent work Sir. And considering the light fall of the further back you go, very well controlled and edited, even more impressed.
And no sign of noise even at iso 2500, impressive performance from the MkII.

Now as much as I like colour (have I mentioned that? ), B&W allows me to focus more on the fine carriages and not distracted by the richness of the colours. So a good choice for me. George has already mentioned the technical merits in this so I will just nod my head in agreement. I'm impressed with the ISO rating; I still get uneasy pushing mine beyond 1600.

A very good image of the carriages with super detail throughout, very well suited to mono and your editing brings out the very best in the range of tones here,

I like the coloured version of this but I can definetly agree that the mono one shows off the better tones and details & not as overpowering as the coloured version. Gosh IS0 2500 & no noise or grain on it. Well taken & edited.
