A few as I try to restart my camera after being uninterested in it since getting back from Europe (too busy trying to work through all of the material from that trip).

City Hall (little bit of simulated IR processing on this one)

Thanks Bill. Nothing really special. As I've discussed before, I tend to do B&W by starting with a number of film emulation presets, pick the one or two that seem to work best with the image in question, and tweak from there. One of my favorite presets is an IR emulator. It obviously can't do true IR because the camera has not been modified to see those color spectrums that the human eye can't detect, but it does a pretty good job of emulating the look of the old IR film. I'm dead sure the first one uses that (note the green leaves that have gone white), I think the second one does but I'm not sure, but not the other two. Its just a try it and see approach - I can usually find a preset that serves as a really good starting point, and then I tweak shadows, highlights, and a couple of other settings as needed.
