I like the color one, there is a loss of sgarpness,,,,,,,,were you on a boat?

@Shuva: Thanks Shuva - me too! I was not on a boat - I was on seawall where the bridge to pier starts...still working on color to B/W transition...

I like the colored one too Jerry. Don't think it is unsharp particularly - I think a lot of the detail noticeable in the other one disappears here in all the grey and whites. Your pier lights show up more in the color version. Also, is this one further away or is the other cropped in more? I love black and whites and maybe an increase in contrast may improve it. Its still a nice photo if we hadn't seen the colored one. Cheers. :-)

@Anne: Gotcha - I'm still working making the proper transition from color to B/W...thanks!

Nice perspective Jerry. I also like the slightly blurred water.

I like this one too Jerry!
One thing tht caught my attention were the clouds (they form a very nice pattern)...would love to see how they would look if u can bring them out a little more! :)

@Kaushal: Kaushal - I appreciate your kind words and I wish I knew how to bring them out more too...I struggle somewhat with black and white and will have to continue to work on it! have a great weekend!
