I wanted to see the results of the camera doing the actual toning vs. photoshop and I doing the work.
I personally like doing the work because I like the b/w's with more contrast...but it's nice to have it in-camera.
Interesting, I didn't know cameras could do this on their own! But my hubby just informed me that "yes" mine will do it as well... hmmmmm, one more thing to try. I love b/w's, my thought is that the range here seems more limited than post processed (no true blacks or whites)... the color shot on the other hand has fabulous color!
Every once in a while I'll use the sepia mode, and more often I try the B&W mode, but its still not as good as using photoshop....sometimes the darker tones arent picked up....thus, I always end up adding more contrast.....but love your shots!

I like the B/W version, although I prefer normally colour pictures. Great shot.
I like the way you captured the subject and the foreground Lynn , Very nice! If you really want to see the actual result of your camera , you have to have a Gray card or something gray place on the subject , set your camera to auto , then take a one shot , after that copy what's in the settings of your camera and do it on Manual Mode, That would be your Patterned Setting on all your shot on that place regardless how many shot you make , you could see the actual toning and colors! By the way you could buy a 50% gray art paper on any Art Store! lol! thank you so much for sharing Lynn...
Best regards ,
