    I took this first photo in Boston last summer. I always try to use a light hand in post but can't help feeling I might have overdone the sky. Your thoughts on the before and after? The last pic is straight from the cam, no tweaking at all. Boston harbor as night falls. I didn't feel I could do any better than the camera did.

    The blue cast in the clouds is a bit much on the after shot. A shot like this one with mostly clouds in the sky and muted blues might work better as a B&W.

    The harbour shot looks nice, maybe just a minor crop on the right hand edge required.

    Dramatic effect showing at shot #2 and 3 which I both like most.
