I really like the B&W effect on this shot. What I didn't like on the previous shot was some of the sky in the center right of the photo was washed out - no definition. The effect may work at some point - but I wanted more definition in the sky. The other shot is a single HDR photo. This shot is seven different exposure levels - and the sky came out much better. There is a lot more definition. Seven levels is the most I've ever tried before. I like this much better. New Trick.
