It was PP-ed. The original one has higher contrast. And from input that I received from experienced film people, the tone cannot be too compressed. I don't really get it tho'. That's why it turned out like this. Usually I always apply higher contrast on my B&W works.

Hmm.. Zumi, quick question. I thought B&W should always be contrasty (more blacks and whites) instead of greys dominating?

Hope you don't mind me asking. Wanted to know too.

Thanks Edwin. That's the only temple that I'm familiar with.

No problem at all.
My personal preference is a slightly more contrasty B&W. However, recently some B&W experienced people told not to have too compressed tone in B&W. I'm not so sure what it really means but I think the idea is not to push black into really black, and white into really white. I guess my attempt this time is not spot-on. I prolly need to bump up the contrast a bit more. I'm still searching what is the real deal with B&W tone. I hope I don't confused you.

For me, the midtones are too dominant, making the lighting in the image somewhat flat.

The sky and the foreground are almost merged together.
