The Pig

by AxelLuther

This Porsche race car was called the Pig because of its painting (pink and showing the cutting lines, animals have on these slaughter pictures). Got my Lightroom 3 yesterday and made a first quick & dirty "development" of a former picture.
I am not a specialist on B&W but what you could achieve with a view mouse clicks was a result I really liked (much more then the original color photo)

Are you sure you're not a specialist??? Good BW and subject

well - I estimate that only one out of 250 of my pictures is a B&W - so I have not really much experience

Colors are the lack of darkness

I expect you to become a great black and white exponent, Axel. This it very sharp and sylish.
Best wishes,
