Castle in Monochrome

It's very difficult to get clean, crisp nighttime photographs without a tripod, and even more so via a telephoto lens, even if the lens can drop to a low aperture.  So when I was editing the photo below and not satisfied with the color rendering and noise of the single exposure, I decided to play around with the picture in black and white.  Amping up the contrast created a more atmospheric shot, and it also allowed me to clean up (darken) details that I didn't want so noticeable, such as people in the foreground.  The result is something a little different than my typical nighttime castle shot, but which I still kind of like.
