    It just shows what a diverse population we have John. Some have great artistic talent and some of them are just #@%&^. Never been a fan of taggers. Your images are a real story.

    Great collection. I have not been to Melbourne for a few years but love walking through city centers.

    For the B&W, try a few different effects like this one. I've sent the PSD via WeTransfer.

    It's all good John, you've done well. There are so many B&W methods to chose from - I'm even writing my own 3DLUTs which is very challenging but so rewarding when they work.

    Thanks for the feedback and kind words Isac.
    The second B/W conversion was done with NIK Color Efex Pro and it added a fine white border. The second B/W was done with B/W layer and color adjustments just like you showed me.
    Quite a few of these laneway images have had a bit of Dodge & Burn done to them, just subtle adjustments to recover some of the details in the shadows and to reduce some of the blown out areas in the sky and tops of buildings.

    More goodies John. I do like the B&W conversions - lovely shades and contrasts. Did you put a border on the second B&W?
    As you may know I do like to see the shadows lifted but I think I'm the only one on the planet that thinks that way, so it must be a defective gene I have.

    #6 Apparently this used to be a "house of ill repute" back in the day, hence the name. Crossley Street was originally named Romeo Lane, for obvious reasons.

    More great shots John. Having footpaths seems like a waste in some of those streets. The only thing that detracts from the scenes is those megafugly rubbish bins. They should paint them as well to blend in more. Just my thoughts though, I'm sure others love 'em

    Thanks for the tip K1W1, I'll keep it in mind.

    Try the Waiters Restaurant (formerly the Italian Waiters Restaurant) next time you are in Meyers Place, Great little eating spot with a very interesting history. One of the last almost untouched and un gentrified CBD Melbourne Restaurants.
    That is a rooftop bar under the pergola in the last shot but my son tells me its not very good.

    Thanks mate, there is so much to see when you really look. The street-scape is constantly changing so when you come back in a few weeks there's always something new to photograph.
