Light Painting

It has been quite a while since I posted anything here.
Just completed a couple of light painted pictures, hope that is the correct term.

They are both the same shot I just removed the color from the one.

Comments please.

I really like the first one. I have always loved black and white and it works great for me with the subject that you are using.

Its makes everything IMHO look more like a period piece.

For what its worth, I have always heard the technique referred to as light removal.

I have quite often kicked up the contrast a bit when I convert a color pic to B&W. It seems to decrease a bit but is easily fixed in a photo editor. It definitely adds depth and character to pics of older items.
