Feel free to comment - or not - on any of the posts.

How does the world look to you?

I was a little confused at first, scrolling down, seeing that wonderful full glass of Guiness, out of focus.....then I saw the words on the coaster peaking out at the bottom....very well done, very well thought out....congratulations.

It was at Bruntingthorpe -just south of Leicester - where 558 was rebuilt.
Lots of "Cold war jets" there

An Afternoon at the River
In reply to LouHolland, Jun 8, 2012

A couple pictures taken at the Tennessee River one afternoon this last week. These were taken with the intent of their being monochrome instead of being converted as an afterthought or seeing the possibility during post processing. Both taken with the E-520 and the ZD 14-54 MkII lens.

Because of the subject I thought these would be better as warm toned than in B&W. I'm still working on my PP workflow for monochrome.

They're both good. The first IMHO is more photographic and the second more like pen and ink. I would think the choice would depend on how you plan to use it.

Looks like an overcast day with muted colors. While this is interesting I might like it better in color. Nice idea.
