(not) my house

No, this isn’t my house but some days I wish it were.  Like this one.  That’s Lake Ontario in the foreground.

Here is the color version of the same file.  There really is not much in the way of enhancement, either.

      Thanks, Mel. I tried to bring out the windows in these versions as I think that this house was designed to take advantage of the view, especially to the North.

    I must say I find your latest B+W efforts much too starkly contrasty, which leaves me cold. Are you trying something new? Maybe some toning effects could lift them a little!?

      My monitor shows a full range of tones in the highlights and shadows. I see detail in the darkest and lightest portions of this photo. I put a lot of effort to bring out as much of the detail and maintain good tonality. It’s interesting that you see this as being too contrasty. I’m using a standard Windows display calibration but it seems pretty accurate when I have prints made. The prints show that my monitor is very close to what I want in a calibration. I wonder if others see this the same as you do but I’ve never gotten any feedback regarding it. I will look into this further.

    I prefer the colour, but mostly because of the orange light in the windows, which does not translate in the black and white. A small thing, but that is what makes the difference for me.

      Thanks, ehpem. I tried to bring out the colors in the windows first. After that was done I did the B&W conversion. Maybe I should try a selective color on the house.
