This is the light fixture "high contrast" - used the RAW file, desaturated, weird curve, then a bit of plus up on contrast. Bit of sharpening.

Original RAW, converted to jpeg:
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/30000-34999/30982/120/370605.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/30000-34999/30982/120/370605.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

B&W version from the camera:
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/30000-34999/30982/120/370606.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/30000-34999/30982/120/370606.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

this is awesome. I'm going to go work on one of my old black and white shots that I think will benifit from this process.

This definitely works as high-key. The colour version is a little dull, the b&w from camera has some drama in the mix with the clouds (you could probably push the levels to make it 'pop' more), but this one... perfect. I think you could also comfortably crop a bit more from the top without affecting the balance in the comp too much.

Great experiment with the different techniques. I like your style :)

First, thanks for the description and the image links. :)

I really like this, and I think it improved in each step: color->B&W, B&W original->this version. This really grabs my eye.

Of course, your nice off-center composition was there throughout.

I really like the high contrast and the texture on the wood.
