I seem to be having difficulty getting the nice shine or gloss on NS engines when converting over to black and white. Use the Canon Viewer Utility and the DPP to edit, but the black doesn't seem to pop like it does on film. Thoughts? Thx.

Any chance you can post a sample?

Hi Bah,

Do you have a copy of Photo shop either CS (2) or Elements?

If so try enhancing the black areas with the Dodge tool, set it to use a soft edge brush, exposure about 5%, only effect highlights.

That will bring up any reflections, that's what makes blacks shine. :grin:
