An extreme black and white
Yes, I agree it is a bit Extreme. A bit too Extreme perhaps, to the point of a lot of Noise in the clouds and sky area. I gave the image a quick run thru Topaz Studio 2 / Add Filter/ A I Clear on High Noise. It took less than 10 seconds and removed all the Noise in the entire image and doing so gave the brick work a Patina Greenish Black appearance. That made it X-Extreme. If you'd like to see it let me know below and I will post it for a day then remove it. Thanks for sharing and keep posting.
Yes please post your reworked image
@degsy , Okay. It has been posted. I removed the Light Green Patina from the bricks to match your original post. Let me know what you think. Ed /Digi
