Old rope and boats

Old rope on the quayside in Bantry Harbour, Co. Cork. I love the different textures in this image, and I knew I’d be happy with it in b/w!

This one is a marvelous shot. Such a delightful composition. Congratulations! If that is not a secret 🙂 , what kind of B&W post-processing (if any) should I do in my photographs to get such an impressive contrast effect?

Tim – yes I do. it’s not always worth it and backing up stuff is a pain but it’s better to have that extra 1 stop of exposure either way than not I feel.

If I’m in a situation where I know I’ll be shooting *lots* I’ll revert to jpeg though. I did that on St. Patrick’s Day. Otherwise I’d run out of space while shooting!
