    We went to Cardiff today and wanting to travel light I took just the X70 with me and grabbed a few street images.
    I thought I would convert them to B&W so ran them through Silver Efex Pro.
    Again, the X70 was the perfect pocket street camera and so easy to carry as well as being inconspicuous.

    Excellent B&W work! The images speak loudly and the B&treatment "fades" leaving only the subject. No caveats needed about color, b&w or explanations about shadows or silhouettes, etc.

    The first image, the first barber chair is an interesting image by itself. The barber with the ink and mohawk. Is there a possible vertical crop of just that portion of the image?

    Really enjoyed these. IMO how a B&W image should render. Reminds me of years of Tri-X.

    Best Regards,
    Roger

    Thanks Roger, it has been a while since I have done any B&W images so it was nice to be using Silver Efex Pro again as it is my favourite convertor. The barbers shop was interesting as all the barbers were inked and had their own style, they must do well as there were customers waiting.

    Thanks Tom, there were some good photo opportunities and it is a big city - we were only there for a couple of hours so limited time to grab many shots.
