This may be one of those photos that needs color to define the objects, though it's possible you simply need to crank up the contrast. Why don't you do this to see if it works? My gut says it may not work, only because I really like those delicate colors.

I agree with Barb about the color - the color version is very subtle. I like that. Your texture is great.

Thanks for the feed back. I wanted to try something in B/W because I was not sure I would be getting out to shoot because in Rochester it is still freezing and snowing and when it comes to cold I am a wimp. But, I will try again. I am enjoying the learning more than the taking of images.

Default Nice Conversion

I like your conversion technique. There appears to be just a slight hint of "sepia" within the tonal range which one of the nice aspects of converting with lab color.

Gil, that's where I am! I am learning how to use my camera and my software (not PS, tho - I would be totally lost and I seem to recall it's out of my price range, after dropping $1500 for a digital SLR) as well as relearn my college education, more than anything.
