Boat in Film Noir effect by ivan

Boat in Film Noir effect

This is my latest image from the series I took at Shoreham earlier this week.

I now have a piece of software that assists greatly in processing of this kind. I was aiming at an understated 'film noir' effect.

My thanks to 365er Sean O'Neill for encouraging me down this route - Sean has great expertise in the B+W genre. He is a hard act to follow!
great bw photo Ivan nice composition

@gerry @thresheg Thank you both for your nice responses, I'm happy with the composition, but don't think I'm there totally handling the new software. I still love colour but I will do some B&W as well.

Yes, this works very well with this, looks way cool. I've been meaning to get more into b&w. I love working with colors so much, but I do appreciate a good b&w. This is great.
