Good stuff! I like how all these images tell something of a story without trying too hard - some street stuff gets distilled so much that it really loses approachability, but this is down to earth. #2 is my fave, the stuffed dog makes it!

Absolutely. In camera - I shoot pretty flat JPG (as is the case here). I then do a Contrast +10, set the black and white points in the histogram, if needed. I do a clarity +20, vibrance +10. Sharpness +35.

I then kick off the onOne Perfect B&W plugin and either use the City Streets or Large Dynamic Range preset as a starter and then tweak to taste. For these images I used the City Street preset and bumped up the Detail slider to +20.

Saved it, then back into Lightroom where I do a crop if necessary and then do a post crop Vignette of -20.

That is pretty standard across all my street photography shots.
