Definite potential there. I like that shot.

I reckon drop EV by 0.5 stop and add contrast.

Please repost updated pic - I'd like to see the result, it'll be close.

cheers,

I think I agree with Gordon. I see a yellowish tinge to the shot. Personal preference but I like the traditional sepia tones a little better. Great shot nonetheless!

I'm not a fan of the yellowish tone. Do yourself a favor and try this B&W conversion technique below - it's terrific. I consider it a "chocolate" tone and it has become my standard "near sepia" look. :)

Thanks Joe, I have copied this as well. I always wanted a good chocolate tone conversion method. I will definitely give this a try.
