Took a couple of shots at the Tiffany's here in Cinti. at lunchtime. No one came out with the distinctive bag, unfortunately, so I though this might make an interesting shot.

Shot in raw for 1st time, and it's a bit overwhelming with all the control. Did white balance in raw transfer, then did levels, curves, highlights/shadows, duotone, usm a couple of times & neat image... I had a whole lot of help from my highly-qualified & very-opinionated friends Tammy & Nick with the post-processing!

I preferred your shot to the blue winner. The jewels on the blue winner looked more bauble than glamour. Tiffany, on the other hand...timeless, affluent.

Congrats on the 2nd!

Wow - thanks everyone for the votes & comments. This is a shock - but it sure feels good! I hope the feeling lasts for long, cause this probably won't happen again for a while. Thanks again!

Very nice, im a big fan of selective coloring though, you might have benefitted from grayscaling only the tiffany's shop fascade and keeping the background its original color...assuming it was taking in color, which I believe it was.

A bold composition and my favorite B&W of this challenge. One of my picks to ribbon. Very well done!

Nice composition and tone. For sure a top 10.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Nice tone in black and white, but if it didn't say Tiffany, there would be no connection to the challenge. You are letting a brand name do the work. 3

I like this, the metallic surface brings it to life. I know you can't remove the stripes on the right for the challenge, but I would remove them from the original anyway.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

i like the curve of the building and the rich silver color. i do think the bottom right causes static in the composition. maybe a different angle?
