Though the colors are startling and consequently arresting, the black and white version is my favorite, due to your excellent conversion and use of tones.

Re: Matt's Project 52: A Year in B&W

#52-60: A Get Well Mini-Mum This is one of the mini mums in the bouquet a friend sent my wife and me to keep us happy company. It started out green. I have been learning the brush tool in LR and used it here to eliminate the other flowers and leaves but there are some ghosts I couldn't chase away. ...

Re: Bikes

waiting for their riders......comments welcomed Nice scene. I especially like the metallic sharpness of the bikes contrasted to the other textures of brick, concrete and glass. Though this is a solid composition, I think there's other angles that might have yielded more drama. But I know with stree...

Re: My new challenge: shooting in manual only.

I am glad Frank brought that up. I do not have a clue how to use the Program mode on my camera.
