365 Project – 260: Playing with black and white – SOOC vs. post-processed (September 17, 2012)

Shutter Speed: 1/50, Aperture: F/2.8, ISO: 400 – shot in MONOCHROME (MC) mode

Lightroom Post-Processed using Lightroom Preset AutoTone

Confirming once again that I don’t love the straight out of the camera MONOCHROME shots from my Nikon D5000.  I set this to MC, and in Manual mode I just trusted my light meter for these settings. In Lightroom I applied the fast Lightroom Preset “Auto Tone” and instantly preferred the post-processed version.  For a striking black and white I just think you need those stronger contrasts and blacks and whites which just does not appear possible SOOC in my D5000.  What do you think?
