Shoot & Edit...SOOC Photo Challenge

Here is my SOOC (straight out of camera) shot I posted earlier this week, the theme was what says "good night" to you... BEFORE

This is with the white balance & noise reduction edit (although I shot this with 800 ISO, f5.6, 1/40, I still seem to have lots of grain - but for this subject matter I am ok with that. Normally I don't use ISO 800, but I did have poor lighting conditions)... AFTER...

BLACK & WHITE...

FINAL EDIT...

Had fun building on the previous lessons Ashley has led us through. I find myself playing WAY more than I used to...and learning lots as each week passes. Thanks again Ashley!!

I love it! I love the crackling along the bottom of the photo; it's sort of a dichotomy of something really modern with something really vintage. Great job!
