It's the time, just before getting dark, all those pubs will be full in next hour or so.

    Kind of strange isn't it that in some manner we have become creatures of the after-light rather than the stereotypical creatures of the daylight.
    I wonder how many establishments there are called shooters around the world let alone here in Aotearoa?
    Kind of find myself wanting a little more contrast and depth of richer black in your image Ben. I think the grayscale format is okay but more so in the mid-range gamut.

  2. Thanks, TK.
    This is kind of time that those pubs start lighting up the signs but not quite dark enough to start gathering those party animals. The big painted sigh of shooters are quite makes big focal point and I found the Thai place at next door is interesting contrast.

    The B&W conversion wise, this one is used with the worm tone conversion in LR. The sky area in original is slightly over exposed there for I did not push the black tone. However, partial burning in PP may improve the outcome. Thanks for the tip, TK.
