I like #1 (isn't dying a little bit like being a little bit pregnant) and since you can't tell by the photo mums the word. lol. #3 is to die for. The composition, lighting, everything about it is great. Wow, this is a hallmark card at least.

Numbers 2 and 3 have it, number 3 in particular! The first shot has some blown highlights. For the b&w to work, you need to crank up the contrast while trying to not lose detail, which equals a bunch of Photoshop fusspotting.

Number 3 is, as Suzan remarked, a Hallmark sort of shot.

i see wat you mean about the highlights, but personally, i don't think they take away.....it might just be me....but i think it gives it a "dreamy" look to it....

hm....you liked the second one? it's an amazing shot, for documentary purposes....but the "sharpness" looks waxy...

i could do some crazy masking and layers and stuff to the b/w one....get optimal tonal range with great contrast....

Hell, these look fabulous Vito! The only one that appears slightly 'off' to me is the 2nd one, looks kinda just a tiny bit out of focus maybe? (I'm not sure bout that)

Are there any good tutorials about for this reverse lens technique ? Do you need any extra equipment to standard lens and slr body ?

Cheers folks. Jim
