Interesting
In reply to LouHolland, Jun 15, 2012

Both are very interesting in different ways. I like them but probably wouldn't hang them on a wall unless I had done them! Or maybe in a public gallery. ....... The second is for me a study in symmetry and tonality. The only problem with the first is that you've cut off the left figure's toes. I would tighten the first by cropping to the shoulders of both the left and right figures. That would also strengthen the diagonal created by the middle figure. Of course that would be my picture and probably not what you want to hang on your wall...... I haven't got any B&W this week, so far, so I guess i'll just kibitz this week. .... They are very good pictures Lou.

B&W conversion of my "Dragon Lily" image.
In reply to LouHolland, Jun 15, 2012

I just downloaded the Topaz B&W Effects Program and decided to try it out on one of my favorite color images -- I think it turned out pretty well Originally captured using the E-1 and 50-200mm.

God Bless,
Greg
