Here is a picture I shot this afternoon. It is (a part of) the pier of Scheveningen -Netherlands.
I did not do a lot of B&W so advise how to improve this shot is very much appriciated
The framing could be a little wider, as you are clipping the far right side of the building.

If the source shot is color (before you desaturate it), you could try to bring out more contrast by increasing/decreasing color saturation. For example, if the sea is blue, select the saturation slider for the blue hue in your photo editor, and slide it back and forth. The areas that are blue in color should lighten or darken.

Another trick you could try if you use Adobe RAW is to adjust the Clarity or Contrast sliders to create some detail in the waves, or better separate your whites and blacks.

Thanks,
I'm going to try that.

After 40 years I did not realize that, I will go back and redo all my work.

Toning of images has a long history, both in recreating classic B&W looks and to increase permanency of B&W images. They are still considered by most to be B&W. If they are not to your taste that is fine.

As for your image, it's a cute image of two animals.

I didnt mean to offend you.

The cats in my image cant stay much longer at my home, so if anybody in Germany is interested in owning them, send me a message.

Sorry you caught me in an irritable mood and should have left the last sentence off the post. I hope you can find good homes for the cats.

Was at the coast yesterday and snagged a couple black and whites of a surfer getting ready to climb down the jetty to the water.
