Yes, it absolutely is. I did take lots of pictures... might get around to posting them sometime. =] Yeah. It was something else. I was there on a bus tour with all the other international students, most of which are also from the states, and one girl pointed to something (can't remember what) and was like, "Yeah, so this is older than our country." Kind of mind-blowing.
Thanks, I took the pic in full colour and converted it to Black and white in post-processing, however, it was always in my mind to do that even when I took the pic. I tend not to use the setting on the camera as I find you get a little more control over tone mapping with a colour image.
Ah right, so you think the B&W in editing mode on the PC is best then. I have done that before with some of my older shots, that I deleted from gallery, which looked OK, so maybe I will not worry setting to B&W on camera then.
It's just a personal thing, you may get differing opinions on the subject. I guess another way to look at it, if you take a pic in B/w then that's all you have, a B/W pic, if ou take it in colour, you have the choice to convert it or not. or both
