    Lloyd: Thanks. I'm having fun. It does have a "film" look without using a "preset". No complaints at ISO 1000.

    Steve: Thanks. Your tip about using Color Selection in Photoshop after conversion in Siver Efex is part of my B & W workflow now. Thanks again.

    Jaap, I agree with everything Lloyd wrote about that shot. Immense sense of depth, as well.
    Best,

    Jaap: Very nice. It is very 3-dimensional. I like the way the DOF works with his body angled. The eye goes to the face and then to his leading left hand and then to the OOF right hand. It exaggerates the perception of depth and creates a sense of movement towards you. Cool. Thanks for sharing.

    Jaap-lovely shot of the boy.
    Matt, the clarinetist is sublime
    Leif - not so cold here but plenty of snow.

    Here's how to keep your neck warm in this chilly weather:

    Hi Leif - cute pup. 1st shot seems a little more balanced to me. Plus I like how the clouds behind make a little "halo" around his head.

    It may be a classic "Lassie" view, but a crop seem better.

    HI Leif
    Well, I'm going to disagree with the others. If you want a picture of your dog, then you should pick the heroic view (if it wasn't a hero, you wouldn't want a picture in the hall, right?).
    So it's the second one - lovely shot (you'll have to clone out the lead though - heroic dogs don't need leads )

    This is somewhat of a personal triumph.
    I've been taking rubbish pictures of this tree for the last 20 years, the tree is wonderful, but I don't seem to be up to the task. However, for me at least, this shot just about makes it.

    Taken with the M9, Mate at 35mm

    Hi Jono,
    Congratulations on your triumph! It seems like an old tree that has weathered over many years, including the snow this winter. Your image is stunning, as always! Best regards.

    That is a great shot. That tree has a lot of character, and with the snow it's especially impressive. Nicely done Jono. +1

    So many wonderful photos.
    Matt, I love all of your work from the market.
    Kurt, Nice to see Wisconsin in the winter!
    John, Your grandkids are darling and your son looks very elegant.
    Leif, #1 does it for me. I like the extra head space.
    F1.0. You are causing Nocti-lust.
    Jono, Love Emma's stole. The tree is very nice, too.
    Jaap, The photo of the boy is just flat-out excellent!

    Interesting shot, Cindy. I guess "grab and run" is enough of a problem there to warrant the chain and lock?

    Hmm... as they are, I agree with Jono, and would go for the second. I do like Victor's crop, however.

    Ok, -22C is cold! That is a really beautifully composed shot, Leif. I love the shadow as well.

    Jono: Nice shot. The snow seems to integrate the tree into the landscape. Otherwise, it'd probably be too much the focus of the photo. Cheers.

    Now that's a good idea. Trouble is, we don't have a cat, and the darn dogs won't hold still.

    Nice image, and yes, it is a lovely lens... well, here it's pointed at a lovely subject, at least, eh?

    "Ice breaker", eh? I always used to try to break the ice with something inane like, "do you come here often?". or just offer to buy a drink. Never thought about trying a boat or a bridge.

    (Nice shot, btw... looks very cold there!)

    Thanks all for wise comments and sound advice!

    About the hero/lead part. The point is; he regards himself a hero as well - especially in the mountains around all those sheep. If he didnt have that lead, theyd all be skinny and worn out from his heroic guidance (herding).

    Tell me about dogs and sheep - But I wasn't suggesting for a second that you shouldn't use a lead . . . . just that it shouldn't be in a heroic photo . . . a bit like having a fence in the background in the Monarch of the Glens!

    Jono - those winter shots are great. That old tree is teffific. I also have a couple Ive tried to capture for a long time without succeeding. They just stand there looking good.

    I did get your point about the lead - its not very heroic. :-)

    Color shot is better. Did you use a polarizing filter?

    HI Tom
    I'll be interested to see if others agree.
    No polarising filter, but I did use a red filter in Silver efex pro when converting to black and white.

    I find the very dark sky on the B&W looks too artificial; it reminds me of IR pics of which I am not a big fan. Then again, it looks like a night shot by moonlight with a full moon. BTW, around here (Minnesota) a snowbound church is normal.

    Jono,

    Actually, I prefer the B&W version. It has some serious punch and just really works for me.

    Keep in mind, I shoot almost 100% color and process almost 100% color... so for me to like the B&W.... well, you get the point.

    PS - I just noticed that the tree leaves in the upper left corner seem to have halos on them. Perhaps from your SilverFX processing?
