Here are a few recent attempts.

All images from Green's Pond, Newfoundland this Tuesday.

Shot on the *istDS with the Sigma 24-135mm f2.8-4.5 zoom.

Conversions using the Channel mixer in PS CS2.

Looking for any opinions.

Just my opinions, I love the second one, third one is nice, too. The more I look at the b&w version of your iceberg, the more I think I prefer the color version and I'm not sure why. I could be because I'm at work looking at it on a monitor that tends to be too dark (it's adjusted as light as I can get it). I'm not crazy about the last one, but will reserve judgement until I get home tonight. I think the reason why I'm not crazy about it is that there's too competing subjects to me. Maybe that's more a reflection of my own limitations as a photographer, though - I often can't quite make up my mind what I want to take a picture of (though I'm learning to keep it simpler and take two pictures, one of each subject). Or it could be that my monitor is too dark and I'm not seeing something that I'll see when I get home.

No. 2 is really special, the only thing I could harp on, if I try really hard, is the shadows falling across the rocks midway. The composition is spot on, though, so the shadows don't distract as much as they could anyway. Definitely an image thatdeserves aframeand a popular spot in the home.

The Iceberg I prefer in color, too. In the original you really captured that blue tint to the ice which to me was the most attractive aspect of the image.

Very nice series, Ira. It just be my interest in B&W but I really like the contrast of the compostition of them (well, except for #3 which I still like). The iceberg vs. the onshore vegetation...the clean lines of the building vs. the weather-rounded rocks on 2 & 4.

Thanks for sharing!!!

The last one is my favorite of them all.

The first is interesting but does not hold my interest as much as the last one.

You seldom post pictures but what you do post is very good.

I like the last two...Take this the right way please...The third one looks like one I would shoot and the third one is just very interesting to look at!

2 and 4 are my kind of photo
excellent black and white subject
lots of textures especially in the foreground
excellent compositions

makes me want to get out the K1000 with some b/w film and my 28mm lens
