Too much mist to take any good volcano shots. Made the best of it though. The textures in these shots I think made for some good B&W photos

Very nice B&W conversions. I liked the S curve composition in the first one, the texture in the second one and the solemn feel you attained in the third one. Well done!

Thanks for the kind words. I've been away from the forum for about a year now and it's interesting to see all of the old members still here and the new faces that have shown up since especially from around the world. The internet truly is making the world a much smaller, more connected, andmaybe more friendly place. Hopefully I'll have more time to visit, comment and post now. On the first photo no matter how hard I tried I could never seem to crop it so that it didn't seem to be crooked somehow. Eventually I just gave up and left it how it was. I suppose it's just one of those compositions that defy balance.

One more from this set. Although I'm not convinced this one works all that well. Perhaps a different crop would do it.

Hi TBAY,

I liked your #2 shot. I feel though that if you are going to do B&W you need to bring out some of the texture in the main subject, Namely the tree trunk.

I hope you don't my little adjustment to give it some texture. It is easier for me to show you than to explain it. The burn tool is one of the keys to B&W pictures. The other being the dodge tool.

Great shot. It Look like a shot from Johnstons Ridge taken in the summer. When I was there in October last year you couldn't even see any hint of the volcano. The best I could get was the lava field below which appears just in the bottom of your shot.

While driving up for a brief moment the clouds opened up and I was able to get this shot from a parking bump-out. Other than that the weather didn't quite cooperate.
