Yep I like this shot. Taken in the alley by the Campus Post Office (had to crop out a sign). I expect to be punished a bit for the crookedness of the wall...the wall is actually crooked. Original was lit with a sodium light or something, it was incredibly yellow even with the tungsten WB, so I had no choice but to convert to B&W.
•B+W conversion, increase red and decrease yellow
•Crop (to be minus "Campus Post Office <--" sign, lol)
•Adjustment Layer -- Levels
•Increase contrast and a little bit of brightness
•USM, rather a lot
•Save for Web (which I shoulda done in the GIMP but was pressed for time...)
Prediction: oooo, I don't know. 5.5-ish?
Dream: Oh, you know, one of those big numbers that rhymes with "eleven"

Just got a blue shirt, so felt the need to add an outtake.
My DPCO team was less than enthusiastic.
Sitting around 5.78 at the moment.
