    I got my OM-D with the 14-140mm Pany lens and shot some images at the gym. The light and the colors of the place are pretty terrible, so I developed them with Silver Efex Pro2

    I would imagine you have LR? Just tweak it a bit on there, that's what I do when I don't like the WB in the picture. Just my 2 cents.

    Tweaking the WB would not change the fact that the gym is a pretty uninspiring place, beige walls, and bright fluorescent fixtures make that room look pretty boring. Of course, if you don't like the B&W developing, that's a different thing. Just my personal preference, but I did not like the color photos, even with "tweaked" WB

    Anyway, I thought this was the forum to post B&W ?.....

    the images seemed overly gritty. unless that was the look you were going for. then again, i'm a "less is more" kinda guy in the PP dept.

    here's a quick and dirty 3min take on that last one you posted. ignore the crappy cloning out of the clock. lol

    I went for the gritty dark look. In some of the photos I chose a lighter preset, but that's just my personal preference. I could have done something like this (crappy clone, I know)

    I liked them, I didn't catch what part of the forums this was in sorry. I just saw it popped up on the latest discussions and from your intro I figured I'd throw out what I usually do and I agree, the gym is pretty uninspiring lol. I like the dark grainy look to them, seems like it adds more drama to the pictures. :2thumbs:
