Subject: [Leica] IMG:Summitar color vs BW

I was just playing around in my front yard taking a few sots with the  
M8 and Summitar.

The next two images are the same except the BW photo is simply the  
color shot desaturated in CS2. There is no post processing of either  
picture except for the desaturation. I thought it was interesting to  
see the Summitar images in color and BW and which photo is better  
shot with the Summitar.

Photo: M8, Summitar at f8, ISO 160, WB daylight.



Comments are welcome. As I only shoot color in my M8, is there a  
better way to convert to BW? All my BW photos are with film since I  
like the look of film and I enjoy my own developing and using older  
cameras and lenses.
