    I was sitting on the porch and flicked my cam to B&W mode and just then the cats came by.

    Really impressed with the sharpened rendition.


    This is my attempt at pp involving switching on the BW Conversion in NX.


    Seems this mode is worth a serious look.

    PS I might be wrong but it seems from other tests that highlights do not blowout as readily in the B&W mode. I will try a proper test later but could this be possible??

    I may have this wrong (somebody please correct me if I do), but I think the conventional wisdom is that you can get better BW by converting color images than by shooting in BW mode.

    In any event, you could pull more out of these images by adjusting levels.
