Continuing my comment from the previous picture, I prefer the slightly warm B&W rendition of this image to the sepia-toned first one. I have nothing against sepia-toned images per se, but sometimes they look too decisively intended to emulate old pictures (which is OK if this is their real purpose) whereas a slightly warm rendition in my opinion does better justice to B&W. In both cases I appreciate your choice of opting for a smooth yet rich tonal range rather than increasing the contrast.

Thanks again, Marco.  I'm experimenting with toning with this series of portraits.  That's why there is a variety of approaches used, most of which are not posted here yet.  Yes, this is a strong sepia type tone.  I believe sepia (reddish) would be referred to as warmer while a bluish or more neutral tone would be called cooler.

      An American classic car, tree and matching owner Cienfuegos, Cuba.
      Apart from US classic cars there were a few from the UK; this one an Austin A35 perhaps not quite original spec. Trinidad, Cuba.
      Silly me nearly forgot, both taken with my X-T1 and the redoubtable 18-55.
