Nice composition Joqi, Like how you have captured old tradition with the new.

The over exposed highlights create strong contrast, which I've always admired. I think it produces a feeling of nostalgia not unlike a sepia toned photo. So, for me, a regular black & white photo would be a monochrome version of now, and have that immediacy of something going on as I view. Almost any other treatment of the BW photo, however, will remove the picture from my 'right now' brain and put it into 'thoughts of the past.'

I am inclined to agree with Chris - this treatment ages this in keeping with the buildings age. I like it - and the wee motor boat just adds a bit of quirk to it. Clever title as well.

This was one of five hurried shots as i jostled with other tourists battling to take the same image away with them. This was the only one iwanted to rescue and even this one was really flat and uninteresting and lighting conditions were sucjh that inevitably part of the image would be overexposed.Converting to B&W seemed the best option and with a bit of help from one of the duotone presets in PS I think the image is a lot punchier then the original and isn't dominated by the area of overexposure, which, as Chris says has become an essential part of the finished image....Thanks all for input....Thumbs Up!

High key work has its own merit and is ot the same as simple 'over exposure', the high key effect you have produced here Jogi IMHO is very pleasing, it is more often seen in portrait work, but seems to work well in this capture....nice work!
