This night shot of St. Martin's Church (the spire in the middle) is a composite image created by stacking 3 images taken at different exposures - this has the benefits of "averaging", and also improved highlight detail in the fountain and shadow detail in the statue on the lower left.
I decided to convert this into black and white to see if the stacking gave a better tonal range, which is one of the important ingredients for a good black and white image. Success or failure? What do you think?
