Re: To B&W or not to B&W, that is the question

I had my go at them both. Both are valid interpretations of a lovely scene, expressed in different ways. For the color, my main goal was to adjust the color so the water didn't look purple. I know this can be a function of monitors, but I wanted to de-purple it first. My version of the b&w is not m...

To B&W or not to B&W, that is the question

Should I keep this in color or convert to b&w? If I should convert, what would you do to improve what I did? Thanks. Matt

Re: Smoothing Water After The Fact

Minnie, I like the final result the most except for the hat/head of the rower. On a quick glance, it looked like he had lost it; there is greater contrast in the original between hat and water..

Re: I bought a new tripod

Piet, I guess we all have stories about water and boats, cats, kayaks etc. I never learned how to sail but love being out on the water.
