Out at the pub (6 imgs)

Was out with the CRR guys the other night at Ram and had my camera on me so figured I'd try some low light shots. Thoughts?

Yea that's sort of the look I was going for... "It's winter and I can't even take the bike out to wash it."

I like the first one - very photogenic subject...wait, it's me...

nice pictures, considering where you took them - in what light

on #1, I would fix WB - too warm to my taste. regarding B&W shots, I think you could make them a bit more contrast, may be play with shadows/highlights a bit.

The mood is really showing - funny because we were actually having a good time and laughing a lot, but I guess you were not interested in smiles

Shots have the feel of classic B&W *film* street photography...the kinda thing that's been done since the 50's.

I'm getting a great lightroom plug in that will "develop" the photos to look like they were shoot on any brand B&W film you can think of. Very cool stuff
