Default Nice Work

DX6490:

I like both images - good composition and texture, texture.

If I may make a suggestion, open the B&W image in the image editor, select the curve box and pull down curve. This action will compress the tonal range and provides the image with tones ranging from blacks to highlights. Texture will also be increased.

Regardless, the composition, texture and tightness of the framing make for a fine image.

Nice Work,

Rod

I echo Rod's sentiments.

Awesome texture on both...especially the grain in the weathered wood fence.

Good job!

Yes, it's the wood that does it. The grain and variation of light and dark translated over into b&w extremely well. There is, however, a bit of a berry problem. They disappeared. :shock:

Good suggestion,Rod. However i only have Elements. Flat as a board, no curves :lol:
Thanks for all the good suggestions and comments. This is my favorite medium as i started with B/W and an old Yashica Twin lens reflex ansd a lot of Tri-x Pan.

i third rod's comment (lol got quite a chain going lol)

and i think this picture would look REALLY cool if you made a B/W layer over the colored and then erased the B/W from the berries....leaving bright red berries on a B/W bush

Aha! So you immediately noticed the berry bad behavior! (This is all Digcamfan's fault.)
