More Photos: Madison Square Park Area

There's a sharpness and tonal quality to these sepia images that I just find superior for shots of stone with high contrast. The color images I shot at the same time just don't "pop" in the same way. Even the straight black and white don't seem to have the depth and tonal variation as the sepia. (Now if only I could take these same images on a large format, 8x10 view camera, yielding old-fashioned albumen or platinum prints. Even a high-quality digital camera wouldn't be able to match the crispness and depth of those images.)
