I'll state it as objectively as possible...sucks man...sorry, I know what I'm on about (started with wet chem years ago e-6, c-41, densitometry...blah blah blah)

If this is your "A-game" I only hope Vaku has the self-respect and dignity not to respond....blowhard

I'm not Vaku.

That is a boring b & w. Very flat looking. They are wearing camouflage, the exact opposite of contrast. You could try pushing one or more of the colors up on the camo using the sliders in LightRoom or some other processor. This might give it more contrast. I doubt it would salvage it. In my opinion, that would be a better image in color.

Google up LR B & W conversions and see if you can find something by George Jardine. He puts free tutorials out. It would be worth 30 or 40 minutes of your time.

Also, your intro sucks balls.

I see now that you called Vaku out in your pathetic intro. You are out of your league. You aren't worthy of even being his ball sack valet on a photo shoot. Move on.

What a joke. There is absolutely nothing special about that image. Try learning how to read a histogram.

Haha. That went down like a bucket of cold sick. I failed my Drake entry. C'est la vie.

Thanks Locogringo, I can use that.

If you are going to call out Vaku, you should have posted your best work, like the picture you have here (I'm not hot linking his pictures)
